I had Mr Norman for 6th form english. I found him really good! He was clear and made you understand the texts and the NCEA assessments differently to other teachers. He wasn't interested in us writing down endless notes. Instead, he allowed us to discuss the texts as a class, and THEN form our own opinions before giving us some notes to help us with exams. I got some decent marks too.
Doesn't try to be cool like a lot of teachers, just is a cool teacher. Knows his stuff as well. He also shuts down a lot of the noisy kids haha, he's great.
A cool teacher explains things well. during class he can go off subject a bit but what he is talking about i find really interesting.
Was in his 2004 F7 class. Wonderful teacher, and spends time giving essay feedback to students, especially to ones like me who aren't all that good at English! Seems to know a lot about books, even Sci-Fi, which I thought only geeks like me were interesting in. ;D
the best english teacher iv ever had! i used to think i was never any good at it untill he told me that i could think for myself! great subject knowledge, sets the standards for all teachers
Without a doubt, the best english teacher I have had ever. He is really dedicated to teaching and I love his teaching methods.
Mr Norman was the best english teacher i've ever had!He's such a sweetie and actually knows what he's talking about-a rare find!
Great teacher, but quite hard to read his writing since he writes in orange most of the time.
He doesn't make you copy down endless notes - instead he teaches by asking lots of questions and having class discussions. It's really liberating, you feel as though you are free to learn and it's FUN
Mr Norman is the best teacher I have ever had - including university lecturers!!
its great how you can ask him a question just before he sets homework and he'll completly forget about it and go off on a tangent...best teacher ive ever had
One of the few teachers i value for their knowledge. He is extremely smart and answers all questions thoroughly. Quite unorganised however! but that is adaptable
normy is awesome. explains things well super easy going and funny too
Very cool. Great teacher. Helpful and a lot of fun. Made English fun again. Highly recommend
Excellent teacher. Probably the best teacher at Rangitoto College I have had. Explains everything very well and is always willing to help students. Thanks Mr Norman!
Very helpful and doesn't take any nonsense from disruptive students (which is brilliant for the rest of the class.) Communicates well with the class.
Mr Norman is the man. He is strict on those that fool around in class and is very helpful. His notes are perfect and his energy level and 'will-to-teach" is awsome! He VERY easy to understand. AWESOME
