Our Tutor Homestays offer students a holistic learning adventure in a home from home environment. The student travels to the tutor's home country to be hosted by them and benefit from an immersive educational experience that incorporates a mix of classic desk-based study and educational field trips. As with all of Bespoke's programmes, homestays are one to one and can be tailored to all school ages. Not only will students receive an intensive academic boost but they will also discover the joys of learning outside of the classroom. Bespoke currently has Tutor Homestays available in Europe and the USA from major cities such as London and New York to coastal port cities like Valencia in Spain. Tutor homestays can last a long weekend or 1-4 weeks where time permits. This full immersion, confidence-building programme works particularly well for students learning a new language. This is truly enriching learning that produces truly enriching outcomes.

- Outings are tailored to personal interests and objectives

- Holistic learning: galleries, museums, cookery, film nights, animal sanctuaries
- Excursion learning draws on the geographical/historical/artistic/natural and scientific aspects of a local environment
We recognise the apprehension parents will feel in sending their children away to live in another home and carefully select professional, patient and fully vetted Tutors/Mentors who can create a ‘home from home’ environment for students. A parent or guardian may accompany the student if necessary. If your child needs a dose of academic vigour and inspiration, this could be for him/her!
For those families considering full-time home-schooling (removing their child from mainstream schooling to tutor them at home), we offer a complimentary consultation to discuss options. We can provide full time schoolteachers who can take full control of a student’s academic studies and devise a bespoke, structured curriculum that will meet short and long-term objectives. We will help students to register and prepare for external exams where relevant. Our tutors can also collaborate with relevant schools to ensure they complement any curriculum and teaching methods that may be applicable for the student.
Home-schooling can be a suitable option when:
- a student transitions between schools, curriculums and countries
- filling a time period whilst waiting for an offer from schools
- children do not fit well with mainstream education
- unique learning difficulties require bespoke education management
- illness prevents a child from attending a school
In many cases, the ultimate goal can be to re-integrate the student into mainstream education, having thrived in an individualised learning environment and been given the confidence, tools and strategies to reach his/her academic potential.
"Sometimes the best classroom isn't a room at all."
In our eagerness to sign our children up for tuition centres, programmes and camps to provide them with the best possible education, we leave little room for any active, child-centred learning. We then wonder why students lack focus or academic drive at school. The best way to ensure children take more responsibility for their studies is to engage them in active, self-initiated learning rather than prescribe another 'one-size-fits all' curriculum.
On these exciting, personalised programmes your child is involved in shaping their learning experience from the moment he/she selects a topic to master. We also offer a choice of excursions, where appropriate, to museums, parks and local places of interest so the student is invested in the programme and feels more accountable for the learning process. Whilst some topics are more desk-based (Dyslexia Coping Strategies; Revision Monkey to Revision Master), others are more practical (Mindfulness Tips & Tricks).
