I met with Julian twice, the first was intended to be an SLC assesment, but clearly I wasn't prepared for the testing. Julian was the epitome of professionalism and was kind and helpful and declared the day a prep day. (We didn't go out on the water).
The second meeting went musch better. After evaluating each phase of the rubric, Julian time passing on some unknown and not covered pieces of information.
While I haven't taken any formal classes with him, these conversations convinced me his knowledge and methodolgy make him an excellent teacher.
