I have 10 years of Maths tutoring experience with AQA, OCR, Edexcel and CIE exam boards. I have taught at school and university level and I also have industry experience. My approach is to break down topics in a methodical manner, ensuring each is thoroughly mastered from basics to advanced, and adapt to the students' learning style.
I am also an examiner (over 10 years experience), moderator and team leader and can thus improve students' exam techniques and presentation of answers and help maximise marks in exams.
I have a wealth of resources available that are proven to maximise students' potential. All of my previous students have moved levels and received excellent results (with loads of 9s achieved).
Maths is my passion and I enjoy maximising students' potential and make them more confident in Maths.
Please note I do not travel. I live in Wollaton vale and I have a dedicated tuition room with all resources required. I also offer online sessions and can give access to interactive boards and they work just as well as face to face. I have good successes for online sessions. I can offer a free trial so that you can be reassured, in case travelling to mine isn't possible.

From Ruth (5/5): My daughter has had 3 lessons with Shahin so far and must say it’s been a brilliant start. My daughter enjoys going to the sessions and feels she is learning more in an hour than she has done in a term at school! The way Shahin explains some difficult concepts is obviously very clear and accessible to her. My daughter is now feeling more confident and more inspired to study and achieve her target grades. Shahin has made her believe she can do it. Very grateful for the support so far!
From Darren (5/5): (GCSE Maths) Although in the top class in year 11 for Maths my daughter was beginning to find The subject a challenge, was really struggling to progress and losing interest in the subject. The extra tuition provided by Shahin is excellent. Her communication with both parents and my daughter has been superb and she offers considerable flexibility with her lessons. My daughter really does enjoy her extra lessons with Shahin, describes her teaching methods as being really good and connecting and genuinely looks forward to them. We’ve noticed significant development in her knowledge and application in Maths and now has more interest in the subject, all occurring since Shahin has been teaching her. My daughter now has greater knowledge and confidence that she can be more successful in her imminent GCSE Maths examination. Many thanks for your dedication to assisting in my daughters development.
From Kerri (5/5): (GCSE Maths) Shahin is very friendly & easy to talk to. She is knowlegable & explains the maths in a way so that you understand, My daughter enjoys her lessons & looks forward to her next ones. I wish I’d have found her sooner.
From Selena (5/5): (Secondary Maths) Shahins way and method of tutoring is absolutely brilliant, but not only that she makes My daughter feel at ease, she is very patient and works at a pace suitable for J and takes her time ensuring everything is understood. Its been a few weeks but within those weeks I can see my daughters confidence has grown with numbers which is a delight to see.Finding Shahin is the best thing So far this year and would recommend very highly. The best by far!!!
From Bernadette (5/5): (GCSE Maths) Shahin is helping my stepdaughter with her GCSE maths. Shahin and my stepdaughter clicked from the first meeting, with my stepdaughter saying she 'felt clever, for the first time in ages!'. Shahin is patient and has numerous ways to explain what they're working on, as well as lots of tips and tools to help my stepdaughter remember what they've been working on which was a particular issue for her. We feel like we've found a little bit of gold dust having Shahin on board. Reliable, lovely and Shahin has made it clear that's it's a personal mission of hers to help my stepdaughter achieve the very best result that she is capable of. This is exactly what we were hoping for and she has exceeded our expectations in the short time we have known her. We look forward to working with Shahin as we move forward.
From Melissa (5/5): (GCSE Maths) Cannot recommend highly enough! Within a few weeks she has really helped my daughter overcome her confidence issues with maths and there are improvements in her performance already. Shahin is methodical, extremely knowledgable and lessons are well prepared, and a considered plan is in place to ensure my daughter is prepared for her GCSE exams. Shahin explains everything clearly and really engages my daughter, who's says she is really easy to learn from, she is friendly and put us both at ease straight away. An absolute star and when my daughter passes her exam I have no doubt it will be down to the excellent tuition she's had from Shahin.
From Nadine (5/5): (GCSE Maths) Shahin is very reliable and the lessons run on time. She explains in easy to understand detail areas my son needs to work on or is struggling with. He doesn't feel stupid if he doesn't understand something so she is building his confidence.
My son feels he is building up a good student/tutor rapport and looks forward to his lessons.
From Alex (5/5): (GCSE Maths) Shahin very quickly responded to my request for a tutor and within a week an introductory session had been arranged. She assessed my daughter's learning needs in the first lesson and I was impressed that she had accurately gauged her level and had a clear action plan to address deficits in her maths knowledge.
Most importantly however is that she has made the lessons engaging and my daughter who is not the most enthusiastic pupil enjoys the lessons and has asked to do extra over the Christmas holidays!
From Josh (5/5): (GCSE Maths) Since Josh started with Shahin he has regained a great enthusiasm for Maths. Shahin have been very accommodating with times and dates to suit Josh and we can see he is already benefiting from some excellent tuition. The structure and content is first class and can only benefit Josh in preparation for his GCSE's in May.
Would highly recommend Shahin to any student looking for additional support on GSCE Maths.

Shahin has been a fantastic, helping my daughter through her Maths exams and has really given her knowledge and confidence in the topic. I wish we had used her earlier in my daughters education but very grateful for her help in the last few weeks. More...
I wish i had found her earlier. She has delivered great results in short amount of time and made my son take great interest in Maths.
Best maths tutor in Nottingham in my opinion
Shahin's ways and methods of teaching are absolutely brilliant. She adapts to my daughter's needs. Finding Shahin has been the best so far this year and would recommend very highly. The best by far!!
Shahin is very friendly and approachable. I attended the first lesson with my daughter and I can say she is very clever and knowledgeable. A top mathematician! My daughter didn’t enjoy maths at all and was not getting her target grades, then we found Shahin. Ever since, she has developed a keen interest for Maths and says she understands the ways Shahin teaches. She looks forward to her next sessions and in her recent mocks, she has achieved her target. Now we are in track to achieve higher than her target. Thank you Shahin! More...
Shahin is an outstanding Maths tutor. My daughter failed her mocks and within a few lessons only, I can feel her confidence building up and she started enjoying Maths.
She says that she has learnt more in one lesson with Shahin than she did for months at school. And she is on track to achieving excellent results too. What more to ask!!
I wish I had going Shahin earlier. More...
