Enrolment Information 2019 – Terms & Conditions

About Us

Our Founder, Principal & CEO, Sia Goutzas, established Maths Words not Squiggles in January 2003. Our centres provide quality Maths & English tuition for students ranging from Kindergarten through to Year 12. We specialise in Individual Lessons as well as in Micro Groups of up to 3 students. Our Learning Centres offer a safe, friendly environment, which focus on the individual needs of each and every child.


Enrolment, Attendance & Rescheduling

Students are expected to attend their scheduled lessons on their allocated day & time each week. Parents or students may reschedule a lesson throughout the current term up till the day before the scheduled session. If a lesson is not rescheduled within the current term, this lesson is forfeited. No credits or refunds will be issued for absences with or without notice.


Welcome Kit

All students who enrol for a Term Placement or an Ongoing Enrolment will receive a MWNS Welcome Kit. The Welcome Kit includes a Folder, a Writing Book, a Homework Sheet as well as a Maths and/or English Workbook, which will cover the course for the full school year. Your child will need to bring these with them to each and every lesson as well as any additional material they may need assistance with.



Teachers are scheduled to teach on certain days. If a teacher is absent, we will endeavour to find a replacement teacher. If we are unable to, we will notify you as soon as possible and give you the option to either reschedule this lesson or have a credit applied onto your account.
