Creative, Attentive, Reliable
Hi! I’m Ivan! I am an Academic Coach for Staying Ahead of the Game LLC. I have a bachelor’s and master’s degree in geophysics from Texas A&M University and a doctorate in physics from the University of Houston. My teaching experience includes over four years of lecturing and assisting in college laboratories. When I teach, I borrow ideas from multiple fields to help students demystify problems and understand core concepts. I am aware of the profound impact that passionate educators can have on students, so I teach with positive energy and enthusiasm.
I am a big proponent of systems that help us keep an organized life and lead to the creation and proliferation of good habits. As the saying goes, “we are what we repeatedly do”. This is why I believe that the executive functioning program from SAOTG can help students create and maintain the behaviors necessary to succeed now and in the future.
