George is a fantastic teacher with very attractive lectures. I think his secret sauces include the following:
- Look at everything from different views: Zoe (ζωή, big picture) versus Bios (βίος, details).
- Selectively focus on the most important techniques and examples, ignoring unnecessary points. Students can feel that they learned a lot without remembering too much boring concepts.
- Have his own methodologies on creative process. Students can experience those “Aha” times when following his introduction.
