Each member of our team brings a unique set of skills and experience to Extraordinary Kids, and we work together to ensure that our students receive personalised and individualised programmes.

Yvette (Eve) Walton
Yvette Walton (Former Teacher and current Director) has a Master's in Education, NZ Teacher registration, and 25 years of teaching experience.
Yvette has a great passion for teaching, especially helping students who are struggling to succeed.
Her own first-hand experience as a parent with a Dyslexic child helped her have a greater understanding of learning issues and how they can be overcome.
Yvette started this business in 2009 and since then hundreds of students have been helped.
The environment at Extraordinary Kids is a quiet one. It has been compared to Montessori because students are highly engaged in their learning and use materials that are hands-on and can help them to understand concepts better. Our aim is to take the frustration out of learning and show all students that through their commitment and hard work, they will be able to reach their goals.
