Rangitiaria Tibble - Cultural Advisor @ Te Taumata o Ngāti Whakaue Iho Ake
I'm very impressed with Anaha’s teaching ability, his linguistic nous and his expertise in answering complex questions. You can trust them to deliver a quality program tailored to your needs, no matter where you are on the 'reo spectrum'
Anaha teaches with a passion that comes from a genuine love for his language - for our language
Pettah Harriman - Head Teacher @ Central Kids Elstree
Anaha has provided us as teachers the opportunity to learn te reo in context. Our classes were held in our Kindergarten environment and were tailored specifically so that the team learnt words and sentences that we could use everyday with our children and families
Kereama Katu - Iwi Liason @ New Zealand Fire Service
Not only provided an enjoyable and supportive environment to learn te reo but they also taught me the importance of unde

As a teacher myself the expectations I have of other teachers is very high, but Anaha exceeds all of these. He always prepares well for classes, he provides an environment where it is okay to make mistakes, yet challenging at the same time.
When I heard about their one night a week class, I jumped at the opportunity to attend. I have found the classes to be supportive, nurturing, informative and most of all I had a connection with all my class members and our tutor, Anaha. I have already learnt so much, but the journey has just begun and I know will be a lifelong one for myself and my whanau.
Kōtihi Reo Consultants offer the expertise of their prime Māori Language Consultant, Anaha Hiini. Born and raised in Rotorua, Anaha is of Ngāti Tarāwhai, Ngāti Whakaue and Tūhourangi descent. Anaha’s academic achievements consist of the following: Master's Degree (1st Class Honours) - Waikato University, Post graduate Diploma in Iwi Studies - Te Wānanga o Raukawa, Post graduate diploma in Primary Teaching - University of Canterbury, Te Panekiretanga o Te Reo (School of Excellence in the Māori Language, customs and protocols) - Te Wānanga o Aotearoa, Bachelor of Māori Studies - Waiariki Institute of Technology, Advanced Certificate in Tertiary Teaching - Te Wānanga o Aotearoa.
Anaha attributes much of his success to a passion for the revitalisation and the teaching of the Māori language and its protocols. In his personal opinion, Anaha believes that the Māori language is in serious decline and hopes to contribute to the revival of the language in order for it to be spoken in a native manner comparable to 60 years prior when the language was being spoken by the native speakers of that time.
KA PŪ TE RUHA, KA HAO TE RANGATAHI - 2020
E kīia nei te kōrero, 'Ka pū te ruha, ka hao te rangatahi'. E mihi nei au i te rawe o ngā whakaakoranga reo mai i te tīmatanga o te tau hou Pākehā nei ā mohoa noa nei, tae noa atu hoki ki te whakaakoranga e whai wāhi nei ā tātau tamariki i ia Paraire.
According to the saying, 'As an old fishing net withers, a new one is cast out'. I would like to take the time to thank all who have enrolled on all Kōtihi Reo classes this year. I would also like to especially acknowledge something quite new and different, our kid's after school reo class that runs every Friday afternoon.
I hope you are all keeping safe and also practising your reo every week as you are the future of our reo.
KŌREROHIA TE REO MĀORI...
