My son has been receiving maths tutoring from Brian Hookway for the last 5 years. Brian works really well with my son,one on one, making the learning individual and pertinent to my son. Brian takes time to talk to him about upcoming exams, how to tackle these exams and what the focus should be. Brian's approach to learning is very personal and he has a great rapport with students. I would highly recommend Brian for maths tutoring.


Brian has been tutoring my three children in maths and music for the past eight years through primary and college.We find he brings a new level of understanding in both these subjects. This not only helps them achieve well at NCEA Levels 1-3 but he has also encouraged them to develop their own methods to solve problems and learn independently. He is very flexible with session times especially during exam periods often providing additional notes and time at no extra charge. He really goes above and beyond and nothing seems too much trouble.

I have known Brian for 25 years as a teacher and more recently as a tutor. Brian has tutored regularly at Kapanui School (Waikanae) for the last 16 years. He has a good rapport with both parents and students. Brian has a pleasant manner and communicates well with staff. Brian ensures that care is taken to teach strategies and skills that are in line with classroom teaching.


Mr Hookway has helped me over the years and is able to explain maths in ways I can understand, helping me through my NCEA exams. He always makes extra time to help when I need it.


Mr Hookway tutored me for several years and helped me through my NCEA Levels 1-3. He explains things in a way that is clear and accessible and always puts student's understanding first.


Mr Hookway has helped me improve my keyboard / piano playing and music theory skills considerably over several years. He makes the lessons fun and I recommend him.
