Zayne

Hey everyone! My name is Zayne Khan and I’m currently in my final year of my undergraduate degree studying psychology.

I hope to be able to pass on these strategies to my future students. My philosophy as a prospective tutor will be to help me help you develop the skills necessary so that you no longer need my help. In my free time I enjoy engaging in self-development, playing the piano, singing, reading, writing, and playing with my dog. Teachable subjects: English 8-12, Social Sciences 8-12 , Science 8-9, and Biology 11-12. I look forward to working with you!
