>>CURRENTLY CLOSED – NEXT INTAKE SEPTEMBER<<
Maths-Whizz starts each year on 25th September, with another seven-month subscription starting on 24th February. See below for details.
Due to member demand NCHENZ has successfully negotiated a bulk subscription to Maths-Whizz. Our full year subscription price per student per year is $46.00. This includes access to the comprehensive reports interface which provides details about your child’s progress and information such as their “maths age”, how they have fared on every topic and the progression since they started, summaries of work completed and assessments, etc.

Complete the form and then make payment (account details are below). Payment is required by one week prior to start date. Non-payment means you are not enrolled in this program, and your place will be given to someone else. Please Note: All enrolments need to be completed and paid for 2 days prior to the start date for this program.
To take up this offer you must be a member of NCHENZ and remain a member for the duration of this subscription period. Membership is free and very easy to complete, go to our Family Membership form. If you don’t know your NCHENZ membership number click here to request it. Please wait until you have your membership number before subscribing and ensure you use your membership number, your child’s last name, and “whizz” as the reference when making payment. The Maths-Whizz subscription can be used for a preschooler as long as you genuinely intend to home educate that child; any child aged over six years must have a current Exemption Certificate from the Ministry of Education.

You can do one payment for all of the children you are enrolling. Please do separate payments for different programs.
Note, if you make a manual over-the-counter deposit at the bank then please add an additional $3 as this is what the bank charges NCHENZ.
The NCHENZ policy is not to give refunds if you change your mind after making payment unless there are exceptional circumstances. If you feel you have exceptional reasons for requesting a refund, please write to the NCHENZ Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org and they will consider your request. NCHENZ will have paid the supplier for your subscription so any refund is dependent on NCHENZ being able to ‘re-sell’ your subscription to another member. This may not be at the same price you paid for the subscription. In the case where a refund is approved, the amount will depend on the ‘re-sale’ price and the price NCHENZ paid the supplier for the subscription. Any refund will be paid to the original payer only and a NZ bank account number must be provided. An administration fee of $6/subscription will be deducted from all refunds.
While NCHENZ is appreciative of being able to offer a reduced Maths-Whizz subscription to members, please note that this should not be seen as an endorsement or promotion of the program. We offer this as a service to our members simply because the opportunity has arisen and we think our members will be interested.
WHO ADMINISTERS THIS PROGRAM
Gin Taylor manages this program. She is a homeschooling mum in Taupo who volunteers on the NCHENZ Executive Committee. She is not employed by Maths-Whizz. Every single member of the committee is a volunteer. They all have lives outside of the committee, they all have children they homeschool. Some of the Committee members volunteer within their communities, some have part time jobs or work from home. Be kind to these people, they do an amazing job for all New Zealand home educators.
“Maths-Whizz is by far the best maths programme I have ever come across. The animated lessons make learning a fun and engaging experience. The parent reports are a fantastic way of keeping track of your child’s progress in different areas. My son actually asks to do Maths-Whizz he loves it so much, and as a consequence, is excelling in maths beyond his age.”
“My 11 year old is crazy about Maths-Whizz, he can’t wait to hop on the computer (which is a great incentive to get his book work done first). He is learning heaps and loves to receive challenges from other students, and stickers and messages from us.”
“For the first time the kids actually ASK to do maths! Maths-Whizz is a very comprehensive programme that, while having fun, the children are also exposed to tutorials in specific areas in which they are demonstrating weaknesses. The teacher resources are extensive and easily accessible.”
