"(Dr. Herbert) is the best professor I have ever seen. Always smiley, friendly, comes with innovative ideas, not only inspirational but also giving positive feedback. No matter if you ask him a thousand questions, he answers very enthusiastically and always says thank you whenever you ask him questions. I think this is the best quality. Best Professor."

"My favorite thing about professor Herbert is that he designates a certain amount of time at the beginning of every lesson to answer students' questions, regardless of how many there are, or how long it will take. He also shares some of his opinions about science and well being that I found quite interesting, and that I think the class benefited from"

"Dr. Herbert takes all input from students into consideration. He wants his students to succeed, and is attentive to their needs. He is willing to go above and beyond to provide any extra help, I wish more professors were as dedicated as Dr. Herbert. You will not be handed an A in this class, but if you show up and do the homework, you will do well."
