Ivan B. is a true subject matter expert in (among other areas) the statistics and operations management body of knowledge. He is quickly perceptive of individual level and learning style, and delivers the material in a manner that creates a series of "aha" moments, using a combination of short explanations of underlying theory and principles, followed by the application of tools, techniques and formulas to the required assignment.
Skillfully and ethically, he closely guides you through assignments without doing the work, allowing real learning and mastery to take place. In these few hours of tutoring sessions with him, I learned more than I did in the entire semester. I recommend him highly.
