Hertzel is a fabulous teacher & guy. Bad reviews are probably by people who didn't invest the effort a math class takes. Hertzel is knowledgable, hilarious, and helpful. Like all math classes you have to put in the effort & do the homework to understand the concepts.

Took Math 100 with him a few years ago. BEST MATH TEACHER I'VE EVER HAD. Not sure what's the deal with these other reviews, but he helped me a lot. Hertzel would not continue a lesson until EVERYONE in class understood it. He doesn't care about pushing through chapters, he really cares about everyone getting an education.

Not a very helpful teacher. Gives off very creepy vibes, and turns off some students from attending class.

He is a great professor and really knows his material. He is sometimes hard to approach and wants you to really think about a question before asking for help. I don't think I would have made it through calculus 1,2 and 3 if he wasn't teaching it.

When you ask questions he always made you feel like an idiot. But he was really funny and lets us bring treats to class. He also looks like Einstein.

Without a doubt the best math teacher I have ever had. We used the book for homework, not much else. He explains concepts much better than the book does.

After taking Calculus 1 with Hertzel I couldn't believe how much "simple" math I didn't know. He is a great teacher and has an awesome sense of humor. Even helped me at 2 AM when I couldn't figure out some things. I would definately go to Hertzel if you want a good math class where you will learn a lot!

Willing to help you out when you need it and very good at explaining things in a way that you can understand. I was in a two hour class and he always let us have a break halfway through too! Really helpful and cares about his students.

Yes, they're right: Hertzel wants you to do things his way because he's a mathematician and knows how to do math! There's a right way and a wrong way! NO ONE did more to help me than Hertzel, he got me into U of Iowa because thats what he cares about: my education. The students who think they know better than him are the ones who wreck NIACC.

Very unhelpful, unclear, and rude to students. Accused several students of lying about why they missed class, would not help them cut them a break when they were going to visit another college, and when you ask him a question he will point and laugh at you!

This guy has split personalities. In class he appears to be a warm and friendly guy...but when you go to his office he is out of his mind. I've noticed this 3 times this semester. In effect...he has no concern for my success in the class, and responds to my legit questions as "stupid questions"

He is a worthless teacher, he explains things harder than they actually are. He degrades you when you ask for help saying negative comments towards you.
