Focuses on Your Childs Particular Needs

A good tutoring service will understand that not every student’s learning needs are the same. Some students may learn best by asking questions, some by copying examples. If there is no initial assessment of your child’s learning time may be wasted trying to teach them in ways which just aren’t compatible. When students are learning with 123 Tuition, an initial assessment will be undertaken at the beginning of each School-Year Course to benchmark the students’ specific ability-level and create a personalised study plan that concentrates on the individual child’s specific requirements. Our maths and English tutors can help any family, at a fraction of the cost of a Private Tutor or conventional Tutor Centres.

Clear and straightforward lessons

Students need consistency in their learning. That’s why at 123 Tuition we cater our courses to the New Zealand school curriculum, so that students and parents understand the content of the education system in more detail, from primary to high schools across New Zealand. We use short, clear lessons written and presented by highly qualified professionals to teach each lesson, delivered in the exact same way your children are taught in school.


Learning can only truly happen when a student is getting good feedback, so that they know what they are doing right, and what they need to put a little more work into. A large part of the 123 Tuition programme is focused on providing the student with a sense of empowerment and ownership over their learning. For the student to feel in control is an important factor in building confidence, and this isn’t something that all children feel in the classroom. Many of the lessons have a practice option which provides the student and parent with the opportunity to ‘try out the lesson’ – to make sure that this is indeed the right lesson to be working on. It can give them the feedback they need to be confident going into the lesson.

Help Where You Need It

While self-directed learning can help in preparing students for life, they will still need help from a teacher if they have any questions or concerns about what they are learning about. A good tutoring service will have someone available to chat to your child when they need it, so they can straighten out any problems and get back to learning ASAP. When you choose 123 Tuition as your tuition service, that comes in the form a freephone helpline with access to qualified teachers, available 6 days a week, 52 weeks a year, and supported by an online interactive whiteboard.
