Learning Pods

Having nurtured the academic and social-emotional growth of children throughout New York City and Westchester last year, we believe more than ever that our individualized educational approach and custom-made small group learning communities deliver the very best in K-5 instruction.

Bespoke has provided a variety of alternative-education and homeschooling options for nearly 20 years, and recently expanded its offerings in order to support students and families through the seismic shift in the educational landscape caused by the pandemic.

Bespoke’s Full-Time and Part-Time pods — small, collaboratively designed learning communities — provide families of elementary students ongoing access to safe, individualized, and accelerated learning opportunities.

Programs take place at one of our office locations:

Safe

Our classrooms are regularly cleaned, sanitized, and well-ventilated.  Clear health protocols allow all members of a learning pod and their families to feel safe. 

Individualized

All voices are heard and choices are provided that match the priorities of families and each students’ unique learning profile. Children and their families experience engaging and relevant learning tailored to individual student needs.

Accelerated

Constant access to instructors allows children to receive consistent one-on-one coaching in all subject areas leading toward mastery of accelerated academic goals. A balanced curriculum featuring both intensive skill development and meaningful experience-based learning opportunities allows children to thrive.

As you look for solutions to either supplement or replace your student’s schooling, our talented teachers can be the foundation of a successful learning experience.

Choose from a variety of options, including creating your own program. Bespoke provides an array of services, whether you are withdrawing your student from school for the entire semester or year or if you are maintaining your student’s enrollment but want additional in-person academic support.

We were fortunate to be able to place our two children in a “pod” run by Bespoke. The experience could not have been better! The instruction was first-class, the environment was warm and welcoming, and our children always came home with smiles on their faces. The instructor and teacher’s assistant gave our children such a love of learning -they want to read and write and explore nature with such enthusiasm and joy. We would highly recommend the program for any parents wanting their children to receive positive attention and personalized instruction that comes with such a small teacher-to-student ratio.

When the pandemic hit, we all thought the short term solution of home-schooling would be able to replace the “basics” of education for our daughter. Boy were we wrong. Her reading and math levels dropped, she actively resisted interacting with peers on Zoom, and most distressing, our daughter lost her love for learning. When a friend approached us with the idea of forming a learning pod, we didn’t know what to expect. Fast forward to June and the teaching team at Bespoke delivered on their promise to replicate a normal 1st grade year (and then some).

Our daughter once again loves to learn! She can’t wait to get to school in the morning and enthusiastically shares all the new and fun things she has learned when we pick her up in the afternoon. Bespoke not only completed a full 1st grade education, but managed to push our daughter into higher grade levels in reading and math. We are overjoyed at the avid learner that Ms. Levine created. As an educator myself, I can personally attest that the decision to join Bespoke’s learning pods was the best we ever made for our child’s education. I would not hesitate to recommend their services and programs to any family who is looking for direct personal attention, small class sizes, and a program that will keep your child engaged. They are absolutely amazing!

Our decision to form a Learning Pod with Bespoke Education is one of the best we have made as parents. We knew distance and disrupted education led to our daughter feeling disengaged and disinterested from learning. Bespoke’s teacher was extraordinary, and the daily, in-person instruction was inspiring and fun. The benefits of the Pod are numerous—most of all the consistent, caring and curated curriculum experience. It truly has been a highly individualized experience, for each child in the Pod. Bespoke is a total pleasure to work with—the entire team is thoughtful, responsive, and fair. They made the process of coordination with our public school district seamless. Our daughter loves going to the Pod every day and we are so grateful to Bespoke!
