Crimson Acquires Household Tutoring Company: NumberWorks'nWords

Realising Mission Towards Personalised, Lifelong, Transformative Education

Crimson has acquired tutoring company NumberWorks'nWords, with 12,000 students across Australasia currently enrolled in the English and maths programmes.

Celebrated for building essential foundation skills in literacy and numeracy, the recent takeover of NumberWorks'nWords will expand Crimson’s offering of personalised education to more young learners, providing them with opportunities to build on their skill-set and advance their learning across a range of disciplines.

CEO and Co-founder of Crimson, Jamie Beaton and Chief Operations Officer and Co-founder Sharndre Kushor, say the deal is a milestone for young learners.

“ We are excited to share today that Crimson and NumberWorks'nWords have taken part in a deal that will catapult students’ trajectories towards the best education opportunities inside of the classroom and beyond, through personalised, lifelong education experiences.

“NumberWorks was the original after-school tuition provider for young Kiwis, with a 30-year legacy. Our union brings together a contemporary edutech provider with a veteran operator,” Beaton says.

Beaton himself was enrolled in the NumberWorks program as a primary school student and understands the significance of early learning experiences. His advanced learning in mathematics and also English saw him later achieve Dux at King’s as well as secure offers to 25 of the world’s best universities, from which he chose Harvard, and has recently graduated from.

“I did a lot of tutoring as a young learner and found NumberWorks’ personalised approach, fun spirit and focus on building foundations incredibly valuable.

“Aligning the trusted household brand with Crimson means we are realising a shared mission towards transformative education,” Beaton says.

NumberWorks'nWords Director of Franchise Operations, Sarah Simons, says students will enjoy new learning opportunities through Crimson’s specialised offering.

“As part of the Crimson Education Group, NumberWorks'nWords students will be given opportunities to enjoy new personalised learning offerings, in addition to mathematics and English ,” Ms Simons says.

“Both companies are passionate about providing a firstclass learning experience and will continue to make this a priority.

“We share a vision of personalised tutoring to make a positive difference to children’s lives.The Crimson ownership puts NumberWorks’nWords in the best possible position to successfully move forward and meet future challenges and opportunities,” Ms Simons says.

NumberWorks'nWords currently have education centres across New Zealand, Australia, United Kingdom, Singapore and the Philippines.

Crimson currently has offices in Auckland, London, Melbourne and Sydney, with over 1000 tutors based at the most prestigious institutions around the world, providing expert tutoring and mentoring to students anywhere, at any time.
