Hello and welcome. Thank you for taking the time to get to know me.
My name is Andreas Hershberger. I teach pre-algebra and high school math including algebra 1, geometry, algebra 2, pre-calculus, calculus, and probability and statistics. My favorite course to teach is calculus because I find the material interesting and challenging. In reality, I enjoy teaching all the math courses because I get to spend entire days talking about the intrinsic beauty of mathematics. Now, I know what you are thinking right now. How lucky is this guy? I know, right. I also recognize that not all students find math as fascinating as I do. This is why I work with students, sometimes on an individual basis, to try and help them appreciate the math but also to do the math well. I work tirelessly to find ways to make the content enjoyable while also developing students’ capabilities within the world of math.
I didn't always want to be a math teacher. I attended The Ohio State University with the intent of graduating with a degree in computer science and engineering. It wasn't until my sophomore year that I saw the light. I graduated with a B.S. in Mathematics and immediately decided to get my Masters of Education. Following that, I moved to South Carolina and taught at a large public high school. After 3 years, I decided to move back to Ohio, which is where I am from originally. While in Ohio, I've taught at various places including Madison Correctional, London High School, and Shekinah Christian.
A few of my passions outside of education are Buckeye football, gaming on my PS4, and my two cats: Squeakers and Django.
