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 working through examples. If there is no initial assessment of your child’s learning time may be wasted covering topics they already understand.

When students are learning with 123 Tuition, an initial assessment will be undertaken at the beginning of each scheme of work or each School-Year, which ever comes first, so as 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 tuition programme along with access to qualified teachers six days a week 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 all of our courses are aligned with the New Zealand school curriculum, to ensure there is no confusions and no conflict with how your child is being taught in school; regardless of whether they are in Primary, Intermediate or High School. We use short, clear lessons written and presented by highly qualified teachers to teach the perfect lesson each and every time; and all available when you need or want it, not when it suits a tutor or tuition centre.


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 help build confidence in a safe space, without it affecting their mark. It can give them the feedback they need to be confident going into the lesson assessment, or alternatively shows them they need to watch the tutorial to get full understanding.

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. 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, we give your family access to qualified teachers, available 6 days a week, 52 weeks a year, and supported by an online interactive whiteboard.
