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.

Easy to follow and knowledgeable tutor

Ivan helped me out pass my college management science course by meeting with me and making sure I understood concepts. I'm about to pass the class with an A, and I probably would have never been able to without Ivan's help.

Andrew, 20 lessons with Ivan

Ivan is the G.O.A.T.!!!!!!!

Ivan is the most phenomenal tutor. You may be able to find someone cheaper, but this is really a case of "You get what you pay for." I am in an MBA program and I learned more in my sessions with Ivan than I learned from professor. He is patient, understanding, and has the mastery of the subject to tutor someone who has no prior knowledge of the subject. I had another tutor who got annoyed when I didn't understand but Ivan answered every question I had with the patience of a saint. I don't want to hype him up too much because then he won't have availability for me when I take my next class, but there are really not enough good things I can say about him. He is a true educator!

Jamie, 4 lessons with Ivan

Very knowledgeable, great teacher!!

Ivan helped me with my supply chain management coursework. I had no clue how to understand the material before our session, but afterwards I felt much more prepared.

Anjenetta, 8 lessons with Ivan

great tutor

I am takin. A very difficult supply chain management course which is taugh asynchronously. Concepts that didnt make sense to me were made clear through Ivan’s lessons. An excel assignment which was created with preformulated templates was very confusing too understand however Ivan helped me to understand the underlying concept of how to correctly complete the assignment with only an hour of tutoring. I am very satisfied with my lesson and will look to get more lessons through Ivan as i struggle with this course. I highly recommend him!

Chase, 1 lesson with Ivan

The best tutor ever !

Highly Knowledgeable, a great tutor. Help you understand any subject. I highly recommend Mr. Ivan.

julissa, 3 lessons with Ivan

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

I'm a grad student at USC and received help from several formal and informal tutors for my Modeling & Operations Research class - Ivan is the cream of the crop. Ivan helped me by breaking down the concepts, explaining what they mean in the big picture, and demonstrated various approaches to some problems. He was very well-versed with the material and was also very patient. I felt much more confident with the material, thanks to Ivan's help.

Ana, 1 lesson with Ivan

Very helpful tutor

I needed help in Excel QM and could not find another tutor that knew how to do this. Ivan was incredibly accommodating to my needs and always took the time to help me. He made sure I understood problems before we would move on and would back track if I needed additional practice. I am very thankful for Ivan's help this semester.

Lori, 9 lessons with Ivan

Very knowledgeable and very entertaining

Loved Ivan’s style of teaching! He broke down the cases down to the bare bones and helped me understand all concepts. Have already booked him for couple more sessions

Ann, 7 lessons with Ivan

Knowledgeable and patient

Ivan was great. He helped me with my assessment and knew a lot about the topic. Ivan explained to me in steps what I needed to do and how to do it. He is the one I will go to whenever I need help.
