Hourly Tuition London
Hourly Tuition Hong Kong
Bespoke Tuition's second largest presence is Hong Kong where we recruit hand-picked professional British Tutors from the UK (mostly UK Qualified Teachers) and send them to Hong Kong each academic year. As well as online tuition with our specialist UK tutors, we can therefore offer well matched in person tutors who travel to family homes and deliver tutorials on an hourly basis, as required. Most of the families whom are tutors support are expat families whose children attend international schools and follow a hybrid UK/US/International curriculum. We frequently support students preparing for UK or US School Entrance exams as well as University applications and Oxbridge preparation.

Gives the student a sense of responsibility and control of their learning
Since our 'Worldwide' service was established in 2010, we have assigned tutors in over 50 countries across 5 continents. Wherever you plan to travel, our Tutors can be accommodated in your home or nearby lodging of your choosing. Rather than a key study period curtailing a holiday, this service can in fact facilitate a trip abroad as it enables students to balance time out with study. Weakness areas are soon addressed, targets put in place and learning consolidated; results are frequently swift. The luxury of having an on-site tutor also allows for extended learning beyond the curriculum, building key study and life skills as well as confidence. This is highly tailored tutoring that results in students walking away with a personalised learning toolkit alongside better grades and an inspired mind.
For those families considering full-time home-schooling (removing their child from mainstream schooling to tutor them exclusively at home) or flexi-schooling, Bespoke Tuition can provide a professional full service that always begins with a complimentary consultation to discuss options. Our most experienced home-schooling educators are usually ex-schoolteachers who can take full control of a student’s academic studies and devise a bespoke, structured curriculum that will meet both 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 the home-schooling complements any curriculum and teaching methods that may be applicable to 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 within mainstream education
- unique learning difficulties require bespoke education management
- illness prevents a child from attending a school
- a family's educational philosophy differs to mainstream schooling
- a family decides to take a year out and travel the world
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.
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 the student is involved in shaping their own learning experience from the moment he/she selects a topic to master, which is then transformed into a fun, practical and personalised learning experience. For longer durations, we can also offer a choice of excursions so the student is invested in the programme and feels more accountable for the learning process.

Our Language 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 language boost but they will also discover the joys of learning outside of the classroom. Bespoke currently has Tutor Homestays available in the UK, Spain, France, Italy and the USA from major cities such as London and New York to coastal port cities like Valencia. Tutor homestays can last a long weekend or 1-4 weeks.

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!
