Maths Words not Squiggles, Gosford

The Maths and English Tutoring business for Kindergarten to HSC Students, Maths Words not Squiggles (MWNS), has opened a centre in Gosford after noticing a trend in families moving from Sydney to the Central Coast.

The centre, located in Erina Street, is MWNS’s fifth centre, with the rest located in Sydney.

Principal, CEO and Founder, Sia Goutzas, said the opening was in addition to MWNS’s online service which provides students who are unable to travel to the centre with the option to learn from home.

“We had many students enrolled in MWNS Online, but we prefer having the option for students to come into the centre, so an expansion up north made sense,” Goutzas said.

“We always had plans to expand up north, and this year we made it happen.

“The decision to open a centre has been more than rewarding, with students loving their lessons and the feedback from parents being more than heart-warming.”

MWNS offers lessons to both individuals and groups of up to three.

It also offers a parent portal, providing parents with personalised evaluations after each lesson and real-time curriculum progress based on the Australian Curriculum.

“Teaching is something I truly enjoy,” Goutzas said.

“Seeing the expression on my students’ faces once they have understood a new concept is rewarding and motivating for us all.

“We welcome all students from different levels and abilities, from Kindergarten through to Year 12 Extension, and tailor each one of our lessons to suit them.

“My philosophy across each of my centres is to work at a pace that suits each individual student.”

Gosford Centre Coordinator, Marianna Asbury, has worked with MWNS for eight years and said she has seen academic confidence in numerous students over the years.

“The new centre in Gosford has plenty of space and resources for teachers and students,” Asbury said.

“As a primary teacher, I never felt comfortable with the fact that some students get left behind in their everyday classrooms.

“Working at MWNS has been the most rewarding job for me.”

MWNS helps students prepare for upcoming exams, from NAPLAN Courses to OC and Selective School Preparation Courses, Year 11 and 12 Revision Courses, and Holiday Courses.
