I am currently a Professor at a private university (earlier at a public and two other private universities) in graduate (MBA, MS and PhD) business, statistics and analytics, operations and supply chain mgmt, finance, and strategy disciplines. Among the courses I teach are: Quantitative Methods & Analytics; Probability & Statistics, Operations & Supply Chain Management; International Business; Strategy & Innovation, Information Systems; Operations Research (aka Management Science), Corporate Finance and Organizational Leadership. I've also taught undergraduate capstone writing courses on organizations & collaborative leadership.

With two graduate degrees from Cornell University, I have 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 and real world issues becomes much more intuitive and second nature.

Great tutor set up excellent formatting to display info

Very knowledgeable and helpful tutor

Ivan helped me better conceptualize queuing theory in a way that was much more intuitive than my professor. Analytics is not my strong suit and he was able to talk me through real world examples that made perfect sense to me so that I could better complete my assignment.
