I am currently a Professor at a public university and a two private colleges in graduate (MBA-level) business, quantitative and statistics disciplines. Among the courses I teach are: Information Systems; Operations & Supply Chain Management; International Business; Strategy & Innovation, Quantitative Methods & Analytics; Probability & Statistics, Operations Research, Corporate Finance and Leadership. I also teach two undergraduate capstone writing courses on organizations & collaborative leadership.

With two graduate degrees from Cornell University, I have many years of experience in successfully addressing real world problems, as both an international management consultant and as a high technology business executive.

I truly enjoy one-on-one tutoring, particularly simplifying complexities, theories or problems and offering analogous examples so that students truly understand the "why" and "what" of the underlying logic and problem approach, rather than only the how. As a result, dealing with the subject issues and real world problems becomes much more intuitive and second nature.

Awesome tutor

Ivan helped me to understand my Operations Marketing material at the Graduate level. I feel much better about the material and homework since we met. He is patient, knowledgeable, and friendly! Highly recommend!

Sarah, 1 lesson with Ivan

Wonderful tutor

Ivan helped me to get an A in my class. I would not have been able to do it without him. He explained concepts clearly and precisely. He used visual aid which was a big bonus. A fantastic tutor and I highly recommend him.

Jodi, 12 lessons with Ivan

Knowledgeable and Engaging

Ivan is very knowledgeable on International Business, and truly has a passion for teaching others. He was also extremely engaging. He would have an actual conversation instead of just lecturing. He asked me questions as we were learning, and his questions ended up being similar to the ones on my exams and quiz. He used his own lecture slides and gave me more resources than I could have asked for. I can positively say that without his help I would not have passed. Thank you for all the help Ivan.

Uma, 4 lessons with Ivan

Knowledgeable and experienced professional tutor

It is not every day that you have the opportunity to work directly with an expert with extensive real world experience. Ivan is this person. During our virtual sessions he provided focused, detailed and practical guidance that I was able to apply directly to my Operations Management and Supply Chain course. This included the statistical methods underlying the processes. I highly recommend Ivan as a tutor.

Ronald, 8 lessons with Ivan

Knowledgeable tutor

Ivan taught me many of the building blocks needed for my stats class to make sure I excel in the topics in my class. I went from a C+ student to getting a 90 on my final.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND! IVAN IS A MIRACLE WORKER!

After having to take Supply Chain Management twice as an Accounting Major, I almost gave up. I was so fortunate to find Ivan. He has so much patience and explained the material in a way that I could understand and retain. Without his help, I wouldn't have been as prepared taking this course in person or online. Thank you Ivan!!

Athena, 4 lessons with Ivan

Extremely intelligent , pleasant and patient tutor , has a very good sense of humor, wish my actual professors in my class were like him too

Ivan was extremely patient , knowledgeable and very personable . I learnt a lot about Operations management , he made is easier to understand , he is flexible and made me feel comfortable as I have zero knowledge about this subject . I will recommend Ivan with no hesitation at all . I am pursuing online health care MBA and I am a physician so had hard time to understand this new course

Deep knowledge and experience teaching and coaching

Ivan knows Supply Chain deeply and it shows. He took the time to prepare for the sessions, listened to me so he knew how to best use the time together via video conferencing. Ivan provided a flexible approach to each subject and induced me to learn and solve the problems rather than simply showing me the answers. I can tell he enjoys teaching. On top of that I made a new friend.
