About Ethan


Bio

Greetings. I am a PhD organic chemist with years of experience as a teaching assistant, lab supervisor, professor, and tutor for both undergraduate and graduate level classes. I have experience in synthetic organic chemistry, analytical chemistry, bioorganic chemistry (peptide chemistry, nucleic acids, etc.) and have applied my research to many different areas (cancer, HIV, gene therapy, electrochemiluminescence probes, et al.).

Greetings. I am a PhD organic chemist with years of experience as a teaching assistant, lab supervisor, professor, and tutor for both undergraduate and graduate level classes. I have experience in synthetic organic chemistry, analytical chemistry, bioorganic chemistry (peptide chemistry, nucleic acids, etc.) and have applied my research to many different areas (cancer, HIV, gene therapy, electrochemiluminescence probes, et al.).

I enjoy working with students of all ages/aptitudes (high school students struggling to get through the class all the way up to college students just looking to boost their grades) and have spent many hours thinking about the pedagogy of chemistry. I have taught General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry I and II at the college level, and I firmly believe I can help anybody to not only understand the chemistry fundamentals necessary to excel academically but also apply their new found grasp of chemistry to impact their desired career (research, medicine, engineering, etc.). The perspective gained from understanding the underlying chemistry can add remarkable clarity to any number of other areas of inquiry.

Chemistry

Chemistry

As an undergraduate, I was a teaching assistant for general chemistry, physical chemistry (both thermodynamics and quantum mechanics) and quantitative analysis. I have taught general chemistry specifically at the college level. I have tutored students, including extensively in the last two years, currently taking honors chemistry, AP chemistry and various College level General Chemistry courses. I put a heavy emphasis on understanding the concepts and constantly relating the problems, questions, equations, etc. to previously learned fundamentals.

Organic Chemistry

Organic Chemistry

I have a PhD in organic chemistry from Northwestern University. As a teaching assistant while at Northwestern, I instructed undergraduate organic students for the lab portion of Organic 1 and Organic 2, as well as assisted in the teaching of the graduate course Physical Organic Chemistry. My graduate work was mostly in synthetic organic chemistry with the post doctoral fellowship (NIH) focusing on bioorganic and physical organic chemistry. Since then, I have taught both Organic 1 and Organic 2 as an adjunct chemistry professor at the college level. Overall, I have instructed, assisted or tutored in this subject for over 17 years.

The ideal tutor

Ethan is the one you want, don’t bother looking further. He will connect with the most reticent child in the most patient and engaging way possible. My daughter in honors chem said “Ethan teaches me more in 5 minutes than my teacher did the whole week”.

Linda, 38 lessons with Ethan

A great Chemistry tutor!

Ethan Englund stepped-in late in the school year to help my son with AP Chemistry. He was patient and, when the material didn't "register", would try different approaches until it made sense. He is a first-rate tutor!

Kurt, 5 lessons with Ethan

Superb tutor

My daughter gave Ethan a rave review following her initial session with him. They reviewed the unit on alknene reactions for her advanced high school organic chemistry class. Ethan was able to quickly and effectively elucidate the material and my daughter came away from the session feeling like she really got it. We will definitely use him again!

Barry, 5 lessons with Ethan

Great Instructor

Ethan is very knowledgeable in all things chemistry. He was very attentive during our session. I felt like he genuinely wanted to help me with the issues I was struggling with. I highly recommend him as a tutor.

Alex, 1 lesson with Ethan

Very knowledgeable, scheduled quickly and provided great support when needed.

Great review of the upcoming chemistry test material - chemical bonds, type of bonds (polar / nonpolar, Ionic / Covalent), etc.

Armita, 14 lessons with Ethan

Amazing! He is very didactic

Ethan is an amazing tutor. Very didactic and effective. He also assesses the learner’s level and works on providing the needing information and skills. Our son wants to continue working with him regularly and he thought he helped more than even the teacher. There were basic concepts missing and he were able to find them and clarify them.

Maria, 8 lessons with Ethan

Knowledgeable and helpful

He was able to “fit in” my daughter on short notice and helped her understand her chemistry assignment. He is very knowledgeable and has the ability to connect with students so they feel comfortable asking questions.

Mary Beth, 2 lessons with Ethan

Excellent tutor

Ethan is very helpful with all aspects of tutoring. Besides his knowledge of chemistry, he is very good at helping get organized and has helped out with other classes as well. I would recommend him highly!

Zsuzsanna, 32 lessons with Ethan

Definitely worth the time spent.

Clarified much better than instructors. I would definitely do again. He made time in his busy holiday schedule to help me out while I was home from school. I really appreciated it and will try some online session when back at school.

Gary, 4 lessons with Ethan

Very Knowledgeable and patient

He currently is introducing my daughter to AP chemistry . She enjoys is teaching style as she does not seem to mind the 90mins duration which passes so quickly for her
