Instructor Biography

Igor Ovchinnikov, Helping you learn fast, so you can do your job well.

Hi, I am Igor Ovchinnikov.

Welcome to my profile page. This is where you normally get to learn about me and read something like this:

“Igor Ovchinnikov is a corporate trainer with over 10 years of experience. He lives in San Francisco and provides excellent training-delivery services to clients all over the Bay Area. He has delivered training for Apple Computers, Stanford University, University of California, Google, Boston Scientific, Altera, Stryker Endoscopy, Air Liquide, BAE Systems, City of San Francisco, Anritsu, Genentech, Novartis, Bayer, Systron Donner, and many others. 

Mr. Ovchinnikov holds an MBA from the Ohio State University.”

Well, frankly, I always have some serious cognitive dissonance whenever I have to write about myself in the third person like this. It’s a bit silly - don’t you agree? So, enough of this out-of-body talk!

First of all, you probably don’t care about me that much. Second, you are probably more interested in why you should buy my courses and what’s in them for you? You may be more interested in how my teaching is different compared to the other great instructors out there?

I have to confess, it is something I've been wondering about too. You know, when someone asks you what you are good at, it’s tough to answer that. Especially, because when you are really good at something, you don’t really perceive it as a big deal. Don’t you agree? Think of something you do really well. Now, do you really work hard on it, or does it come kind of naturally?

So, to answer this question to myself, I recently decided to ask my students. Most of the ones I polled are employees of just one organization where I teach - Stanford University, so the research sample may not be fully scientific. Anyway, I asked a few dozens of my students what they liked best about my teaching style. It was really surprising, that most of them told me that their favorite part was how clear things became after I explained it to them. One of them said literally: “You are a great explainer. It was so confusing before, and now I finally understand it!” 

I think, here’s what I can promise you when you enroll in my courses. I promise you clear explanations, so that things will be no longer confusing.

So, here’s my value proposition to you:

When you enroll in my courses and go through the material, you should expect clear explanations that will help you learn and build your skills fast, so you can succeed at your job. 

If that is the experience that you are interested in, simply enroll in my courses below.
