AnyQuestions and UiaNgâPâtai

AnyQuestions.co.nz and UiaNgâPâtai.co.nz are designed to help you find useful, accurate, online information for your homework. AnyQuestions homework help is delivered in English, while Uia ngâ Pâtai is for school students who would prefer to chat in te reo Maori with fluent Maori staff.

It’s not a ‘quick answers service’ - instead their group of online librarians are trained to help you work out the sort of information you need, then begin searching with you.

Librarians from all over New Zealand are available each week day between 1pm and 6pm to help you search online. To use AnyQuestions.co.nz or UiaNgâPâtai.co.nz you have to be attending a New Zealand primary, intermediate, secondary school or be home schooled.

How it works:
  • Students go on the AnyQuestions website and start asking for homework assistance using online chat.
  • The available online librarians assist by pointing the students to reliable information in libraries and trusted online resources to help them complete their homework and assignments.
