On A Mission To Make Maths Fun: Meet Shivanshu Atrey

  • 08/08/2019

Mathematics is a complex subject and not everyone gets it, but there are teachers who are on a mission to make maths a fun and simple to understand subject.

Case in point: Mr. Shivanshu Atrey.

Shivanshu is a Mathematics and Mental Ability teacher from Kota, Rajasthan who has helped thousands of students get over their phobia of maths.

With more than 15 years of teaching experience, Shivanshu’s career has been an illustrious example of how teaching with passion can make a real difference.

MillionCenters spoke to Shivanshu Atrey and discuss his journey from being a scholar to an expert –


Hello Shivanshu! Thank you for taking out your time to talk to us. Please tell our readers about yourself.

Welcome – I am Shivanshu Atrey and am a Mathematics and Mental Ability teacher with more than 15 years of experience.

My greatest passion in life is to teach people and help them gain confidence and mastery over the subject of mathematics.


That sounds interesting! Can you elaborate on how and why you developed the passion for teaching maths?

I have always been fascinated with mathematics. Since childhood, I was inclined towards numbers, crossword and puzzles.

By simply following my natural curiosity and interest, I decided to expand my subject knowledge.

Eventually, I chose teaching as a profession and mathematics as my preferred subject!


Tell us more about the subjects and students you teach.

I teach mathematics to students of classes 8th to 12th and also to students of competitive exams. 

I offer lessons for arithmetic, algebra, geometry, trigonometry and every other branch of maths.

Further, I also offer mental ability or logical reasoning classes to students.

As a teacher, I believe logical thinking is a critical skill necessary for a successful career. So, I offer mental ability tips, tricks and tutorials to students of all age groups.

My ultimate goal with teaching is to make students overcome their fear of maths – a lot of people perceive mathematics as a boring and tough subject but I can make it fun and interesting!

If anyone is looking for home tuition for maths for CBSE/ICSE board exams, you can contact me and get their mathematics concepts cleared.




Do you teach via online or offline mediums?

I believe both online as well as offline mediums are equally important and effective.

Online tutorials offer a convenience for both teacher and students, whereas offline learning is more personal and engaging for both.

I offer my video lessons on Unacademy and YouTube as well. Plus, I also run and manage my own institute called ‘SA Classes’ in Kota, Rajasthan.


What are your thoughts on teaching as a profession? Do you think we need more teachers in our society?

Teaching is a noble and satisfying profession – I love when my students secure good marks and thank me.

Teachers are not only required but they should be given equal importance as to other professions like doctors and engineers. It is because of us teachers, the other professions are possible!

As a maths teacher, I am always willing to share my knowledge, understanding and skills of the subject.

For me, mathematics is not only a subject, but an art and I as a teacher, can help students understand the basics as well as the advanced concepts of this art.

If youngsters start seeing teaching as a satisfying, rewarding and respected profession, I am confident that our society can change for the better in the future.

Wonderful thoughts, Shivanshu! Is there anything else you would like to say or share with our readers?

All I can say is everyone should strive for knowledge. Students should not only learn to score good marks, but understand the subject correctly.

Understanding of a subject is critical to achieving a sense of mastery on it.

As a teacher, my focus is to help students understand mathematical concepts easily so they can apply the knowledge to solve problems effectively.

Maths is not only about formulas, theorems or equations – it is about understanding and clarity of concepts.
