He's a good teacher as long as he likes you, so make sure you get on his good side.
some people will say he's mean, but you just need to understand where he's coming from and it'll all make sense. best teacher i've ever had. learnt and continue to learn so much in his classes.
Somewhat unorthodox but over all nice guy
We didn't learn much maori but we and lots of fun playing lots of games
matua is great! in class we didn't learn much language but we played lots of games and sang lots of songs. i'm in kapahaka too and he is super nice
Moari is my favourite subject ,, though she dosn't teach you hardly any moari. She is soo funny and has the best games .. is very intimadating to shy kids .
matua is awesome! he teaches well and he actually asks us what he can improve on.
he was a really great teacher, always knew how to keep us in line and paying attention. but he tended to base how a class was off one or two people in it.
Matua is awesom but has favourites. He will always choose the favs to do somethng fun. sometime the classes seem a bit repetative- the games but otherwise they are sooo fun and awesome!
matua is great, and whenever i see him i get a greeting. he remembers names, and maori was always fun, especially using those stick things with partners
Hes like majorourly like totally funny! Hes like the best Maori teacher ive ever had, well the only one really but still. We like dont do much work and Matua says is like majourly awsome!!!
he is so relaxed about everything i think he is an awesome teacher and he should stay at rangi
is awesome at driving and even backing a bus on camp!!thanks matua your awesome
completely scary and overly PC. I found maori classes were just a chance for us to be bashed about being pakeha...he also has clear favourites.
An incrediblly good teacher with a whole 'teaching ethic' kind of thing. He is really passionate about things and pushes many class discussions to the limit. Is scary at times because he is so intense, and does favour some people. shy people might have a hard time in his class, if he puts you on the spot.
He was a great teacher and we had brilliant class discussions. He made good points but was very stubborn about some of them
Supports all sports, a great supporter and awsum teacher..Other teachers should ask him for advice because we learn lots but at the same time have fun which is the main thing when being at school!!!!
Matua is an amazing teacher! hes also very supportive with all sports and stuf! hes taught me alot bout everything! :)
yeah hes real cool but puts you on the spot sometimes. his classes are always fun!
Matua is an awesum teacher. he challenges your views and makes you think.
I don't understand the scary sentence below but don't think thats a reasonable answer.He's the whole teacher package.Fun, friendly but firm @the write times,talks to you @the same level,not down on u.
Hes awesum, he puts u on the spot sometimes but hes so funi!
oh i liked maori oh and kapahaka,he was sooo cool and hes got one of those cool smile that when he smiles his eyes go all wrinlky, im gna get 1 of those 1 day. oh and the chocolates just topped it off
Class is fun because he makes everything different each week..
