I started teaching in 1996 and ever since a large number of my students have achieved distinctions in Cambridge Maths and A-levels Maths, IB SL and HL Maths and SAT Maths.

The NCEA results have also been very promising - many have attained merit endorsements and excellences.

Some students sat for Aptitude tests and have got selected for the Forces.

I have traveled and stayed in 14 countries, experiencing diverse cultures and learning different languages at the same time. Amazing experience!

In 2012, I got a letter of appreciation from MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA) for my work with one of their students.

Alongside Maths, I also teach Statistics, Calculus, Science and Physics.

Students find my techniques very easy to relate to, thereby excelling in their exams.

Shah is a fantastic tutor. The lessons move at a good pace, and he makes concepts I previously found difficult seem easy.

Our son currently Y8 doing IB loves Maths and has always done well. He felt the need to be challenged more and wanted to lift his results even further. He started tuition with Shah and within a couple of weeks in his next Assessments, he scored the coveted '8.' His tutor session with Shah the highlight of his week, he loves exploring ideas with Shah and finds Shah incredibly kind and motivating and his teaching technique practical, simple and thorough. The best Tutor ever!!! :):):)

Our Year 11 son started the year lacking confidence and achieving average results. Since starting his private tuition, with help from Shah, his school results have immensely improved to near A grade and his understanding and enjoyment of Cambridge Maths has grown. We would definately recommend Shah and we hope the end of year results will be testiment to his teaching

Shah has been working with my year 10 son, who has been struggling with Math, for around 6 weeks now. Two weeks ago my son sat a Math exam which would give him 4 NCEA credits towards his NCEA next year and he passed. I highly recommend Shah. He is patient and is definitely helping my son's understanding of math.

I am in the process of studying for the NZ Defence Force aptitude tests, so the high school maths revision was quite daunting for me, as high school was a while ago! :) Shah has a very personal approach and makes you feel comfortable straight away, making the learning process fun, using concepts or examples that you can relate to. He has been very flexible and understanding of my situation and has tailored our sessions to focus on my requirements. Highly recommend this tutor!

My daughter is a bright student in all areas. Her progress in Maths has always been good, but even so, we feel that school leaves gaps in knowledge, in Maths in particular. As individual questions remain unanswered and the teacher has to skip to new topics, students’ stress levels increase unnecessarily. I am glad we came across Shah’s ad and I am pleased with the way he tutors my daughter. As the gaps are filled in, her confidence increases. We look forward to more sessions throughout the year.

Shah helped my 18-year-old son with his SAT maths study. After reading the other reviews here, I can only concur with them. My son looked forward to the sessions (a first!) and even said he was disappointed when the SAT test date came because they would have to end! He really appreciated the way Shah could break problems down to explain them clearly and also made the maths tutoring enjoyable at the same time. I would say he has a gift and would recommend to others with no hesitation.

Shah: Thank you for your kind words. Joel is a keen and focused student who had set his eyes on improving his SAT score. That kept him interested and look forward to my tutorials. I wish him best for his future. All the best!
Brilliant tutor. Boosted my confidence in A Level mathematics. Highly recommended.

Shah was an excellent tutor for my daughter when she was struggling with NCEA level 2 maths. He lifted her confidence and enabled her to pass with a Merit. I would thoroughly recommend him and will definitely return if extra tuition is needed again. Thanks so much Shah

Shah is an excellent tutor. He gets to know his students and tailors his lessons according to their level of understanding, as well as their needs and disposition. He is knowledgeable and very experienced - yet he helps the student understand by making the lessons simple, fun and enjoyable. My son always comes away from Shah's lessons in a better mood and frame of mind.

My son has been going to Shah's tutor for a while now, and with the up coming of NCEA exams,my son told me Shah has helped him greatly by boosting his confidence in preparing for his math exams. My son also said that he could easily understand the IB maths and physics that shah is teaching him for next year.

My daughter has been tutored by Shah for a couple of months and her confidence has continued to grow after each session. She always feels very comfortable asking questions if she is unsure of a topic and feels that Shah answers her questions clearly.This additional tutoring has reflected in her school results. Karen

I could not have asked for a better math tutor than Shah. He adds a perfect balance of seriousness and fun in the lessons. As someone who struggles with maths it was a surprise to find someone who can explain maths in a very understandable way. :D

Shah has been tutoring my son for all of last term. My son is doing Level 1 NCEA and finds Maths a challenge. Since being with Shah he has a better grasp of Maths and we are looking forward to some great results at the end of the year.

My daughter is doing NCEA Level 1 and started with Shah mid way through this term. Already her confidence has improved and this is reflected in the results she is achieving. She will be spending extra time with Shah leading up to exams. She is planning on taking Maths and Stats Level 2 next year and we will definitely be continuing with Shah.

My son is doing Cambridge with Mr. Shah and he is very happy and satisfied. Mr. shah is very qualified and experienced, he approaches the student according to their needs. I can't ask for a better teacher for my son!!

Our son was looking for a tutor that could support him in receiving a top grade in A2 level maths. Shah has been very capable of providing him with extra help he wanted within a relaxed and easy going environment. We will continue to use Shah for the rest of the year and we have no doubt it will be reflected in our sons end of year results.
