About this tutor

I've been teaching 8 years now in the field of Science, particularly Chemistry. I have a BSc. Degree in Chemistry with a Minor in Analytical Chemistry. I also have experience as an analytical and environmental laboratory technician. My tutoring services are all online.

My approach to teaching is definitely unique as I produce educational videos and use interactive, animated lectures to capture the interest of my students. My lessons are geared to make learning fun and I design them to meet the needs of each student. In addition to facilitating fun learning, I focus on exam preparation where I teach students how to answer questions effectively.  Being a past E-marker for the Caribbean Examinations Council,  I have gained experience which equips me to help guide my students in improving their answering technique so they can achieve full marks.

I am passionate about Science, but for me the real reward and joy is in helping students recognize and achieve their full potential.

    I am a bit of a shy person. My chemistry class in school was a big one, and I would often get lost but be too afraid to ask questions for fear of being ridiculed. But I needed help. I started private classes with Mrs. Benasrie Arjoon and was able to cope much better. She was patient enough to explain complicated topics, giving me many hints and suggestions for remembering. She is also a firm teacher. Most importantly, she was able to pinpoint my areas of weakness. I must say, though, it takes two hands to clap, so I also did my part. She would explain what I needed to do, but it was up to me to follow and do my part as well. So with my effort and her expert guidance, I was able to pass Chemistry to my utmost joy! To anyone having difficulty with this subject and needing help as I did, Mrs. Benasrie Arjoon is an excellent teacher to work with. If I passed Chemistry, you would surely be able to, with her help.

    Mrs. Benasrie Arjoon is a very energetic, patient and courteous teacher who is very passionate about learning and educating others. I’m very truthful in saying she is a big part of the reason I obtained a pass in CSEC Chemistry. She took the time to help me learn and move my learning forward. You would be making one of the best decisions and investment in your future.

    After completing my final classes with Mrs. Benasrie Arjoon, I remember my parents enrolling me in another set of chemistry lessons. I eventually dropped out of after a very short while because I really didn’t need it. I had already sufficiently covered everything for the CSEC chemistry exam under Mrs. Benasrie Arjoon. I passed with a grade 1.

    I am a past student of Holy Name Convent Point Fortin. During this time, Ms.Benasrie Arjoon taught me. She is a well organized and charming person. My biggest challenge as a student then was not being able to focus and be attentive because of the number of other distractions, such as the constant noise level of other students. But with Mrs. Benasrie Arjoon, things were always under control. Mrs. Benasrie Arjoon’s classes are memorable because she has excellent teaching abilities, and she is a well-informed educator. Future students, I highly recommend Ms. Benasrie Arjoon.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I recently bumped into a past student who told me she is now pursuing her degree in Chemistry to become a teacher. She said my teaching inspired her and wanted to impact the lives of other kids as she has seen me do. She was thankful for the persistent help which resulted in her getting all As! (Grade 1 in CSEC) It made me tear up and realise that as teachers, even when we don't think it, we're making an impact in a child's life! When it is done right, we create a ripple effect of hope for generations to come.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Inform your teacher about your needs and challenges and ask if they are able to assist you in those specific areas.
