It is a common misconception that tutoring is predominantly for kids struggling in their schooling. However, professional, structured tutoring can benefit students of all abilities. After such a tumultuous couple of years, tutoring could be exactly what your child needs for a successful and confident 2022.

Expert tutoring in a fun and stress-free environment can have positive outcomes for children of all academic levels and abilities. For the academically gifted, tutoring enhances their learning pathway so they can excel at their own pace and not be held back or risk boredom.
The students with average grades can also see significant improvement—in their grades, but also in their comprehension and understanding. They learn at a deeper level, no longer just focusing on passing tests. They learn to retain information, use critical thinking, and understand their assessment requirements better.

For a tutoring program to be successful, it must be fun and engaging. Particularly for kids who have become disengaged from their school classroom. NumberWorks’nWords Bondi Junction owner Diana Emery, and Eastgardens owner Gene Mulder, believe their positive environment is a key factor in why their program is so successful.
“Our students all enjoy the learning and always progress at their own personalised level,” Diana says. “There is plenty of praise, fun, and certificates. It’s a wonderful learning culture where everyone thrives and experiences success.”
Quality time and connection with the tutor is also critical to tutoring success, Gene adds. Which is why he is also a strong advocate for in-person tutoring.
“Each tutor spends quality time with their students to make the child feel supported and encouraged, and tutors ensure supportive practices are in place,” Gene explains.

With a successful background in teaching and curriculum development behind them, Diana and Gene understand how difficult it can be to cater for everyone’s needs in the classroom, which is why a personalised program is critical.
“NumbersWorks’nWords is a unique style of tutoring that engages children of all levels and abilities, and really brings back that enthusiasm for learning,” says Gene.
“Every student is given an individualised program and works towards their goals,” explains Gene. “The curriculum- linked program, designed by experts, delivers the results your child needs whilst also building their confidence.”
Feedback received from parents is overwhelmingly that the NumberWorks’nWords program has brought a love of learning back to their children’s lives.
“Seeing your child struggle at school is heartbreaking,” says Diana. “I talk to parents whose children were struggling, and they are amazed. One recently said, ‘I don’t know what you are doing, but she’d rather come to you and do maths than go to dance classes!”
WHAT IS THE NUMBERWORKS ‘N WORDS PROGRAM ?
Many people who come to Diana have tried some form of tutoring before and haven’t had much success.
- “The NumberWorks‘nWords program is so engaging and structured, students make far more progress here than with many other methods,” Diana explains.
- “Helping students turn their learning experiences around is extremely rewarding. It’s incredible to be part of those ‘light bulb’ moments.” In fact, they are so confident that the kids will love it, NumberWorks’nWords offers a free assessment.
- “The student can come into the centre, we assess them in maths and/or English, then they experience working with a tutor, whilst parents are given the tour and we can answer any questions they have. We then discuss the results, the students’ goals and give a recommendation.”
- “When parents come in and explore the centre, they can then understand how well it works.
