Number Works’ n Words

For the past three months, I have been blogging about my personal experiences as a first-time mother. Years from now, I will surely be scouting of a learning center that will perfectly maximize my daughter’s learning skills while making her enjoy every step of it. This makes me wonder if there is an educational institution in our country that is innovative enough to cater to the changing needs of the kids in terms of tutorial lessons. It’s a fact that kids nowadays are more techie and more exposed to internet and online gaming. Even my one year and five months old baby girl knows how to use the computer mouse. So, technically, kids older than her are more enthusiastic and more eager in using the computer. At a young age, it’s important that kids should develop a love of learning because this is where everything will start.

I’m glad that I have found what I have been looking for in the name of NumberWorks’ n Words. NumberWorks’ n Words is an international learning center for Math and English which has been operational for the past 25 years.  They specialize in building children’s confidence and success in Math and English through the use of a modern and fun computer-aided tutorial system.

This is not the usual tutor-student relationship in which most mothers can agree and tutors themselves, that kids are unexcited upon knowing their tutorial session and unresponsive in the actual class. But, this scenario is not applicable when your child is enrolled in NumberWorks because they use an effective learning tool that is enticing to the eyes and interest of the kids through integrating English and Mathematics with games and other activities. The learning process is fully enjoyed by the kids since playing and learning were mixed into one.

Professor Dan Handy, Managing Director of NumberWorks’ n Words discussing their tutorial system

According to Professor Dan Handy, Managing Director of NumberWorks ‘n Words, their innovative and enjoyable approach keeps kids coming back for more sessions, even after the school year starts.

Kids do not operate the system by themselves, they were closely monitored and guided by their tutors.

I personally witnessed their approach to learning. Since kids were also invited in the event, they had the chance of trying the center’s purpose-built software. And yes, kids loved the learning system right away. They were very interested, excited and happy while solving Math problems. I must commend the very accommodating attitude of the tutors and Professor Dan Handy himself. What makes this different with the downloadable computer games is the ability of the system to assess your kid’s current potential plus the monitoring and guidance of the well-trained and well-equipped tutor. Every student has an individualized learning program that is specifically tailor-fitted to his/her needs. New concept is explained and taught by the tutor followed by the computer-based exercises. Progress is closely monitored by the tutor and regularly coursed through the parents.

Jed continuously enjoying the system. He’s the first kid to try the program and the last one to leave. It’s a love at first sight for him.

One of the parents, who happens to be a mathematician tried the system too. NumberWorks’ n Words program are not only for students who aren’t performing well in school but as well as, to the high-achievers and to those who want to be advanced. They cater to kids 5 years old and up. I asked one of the tutors what old is their youngest student, she replied they have 3-year old kid enrolled. They have programs for the highschool and college students too.
