If you’ve ever been curious about you or your child’s teacher before starting school, this website is an awesome tool. nz.ratemyteachers.com allows you to check up on any teacher at any school across the country.
You can search by school name or by province and then select any of the teachers listed to see user ratings based on easiness, helpfulness, clarity and popularity. You can also submit your own reviews or add a new teacher if one is missing from your school’s list.
This website might give you the chance to switch out of a poorly rated teacher’s class before the year starts – or at least prepare for it!
Keep in mind, however, that since anyone can post to the site, you might not end up with completely accurate or fair results, so don’t base your decision off this site alone.
