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.

Extremely helpful!

I’m taking an online statistics class where there’s not much instruction, and Ivan has been able to fully explain the concepts I was struggling to figure out myself. I feel so much better about taking this class, but it’s a shame he’s not my teacher! Would highly recommend.

Kristin, 2 lessons with Ivan

Talented instructor plus great communicator equals successful partnership.

Ivan is well prepared for our sessions. His great level of knowledge and depth of experience become clear right from the beginning. Ivan knows what it takes to be successful in this area of study and his efforts quickly laser in on those prime areas. Ivan makes the distance learning format work well. He is well practiced with the Wyzant collaboration tool. I know that my performance will be enhanced because of Ivan.

Steven, 6 lessons with Ivan

Great tutor!

I’m in an online MBA program and meeting with Ivan felt like I had my own personal professor in a class of one. He was very knowledgeable, was patient, and had lots of helpful resources. A+++!

Jen, 2 lessons with Ivan

Very Knowledgeable

Ivan was able to take what can be a challenging topic and break it down for my understanding. Very grateful!

Syd, 2 lessons with Ivan

Excellent

Ivan has been absolutely amazing to work with, I truly understand the material that I am tasked with now thanks to his method and style of teaching. Thank you!

Joe, 6 lessons with Ivan

Knowledgeable and patient tutor.

I had the opportunity to utilize Ivan on several occasions. Often times with little notice and he always made himself available. He did a great job of explaining concepts and the why behind them instead of just helping work through problems. I would highly recommend him!

Vincent, 4 lessons with Ivan

Genuine, caring tutor!

Prior to my session with Ivan, we spoke briefly over the phone, and I found him to be very personable and considerate in drafting a plan for my preparation. I thought he was mindful of what I wanted to get out of tutoring, and very efficient in his teaching and structuring of a session. I'd recommend him to other students looking to also prepare for upcoming tests!

Annie, 1 lesson with Ivan

Just the help I needed

I was struggling with my supply management plan paper. Professor Ivan helped me brainstorm my way into a solid plan of action for the foundation of my paper. Thanks for the help, and I'm sure I will be contacting him again!
