What We Offer
Bespoke offers tutors the best support in the business. We provide extensive academic training and resources, including our excellent printed curriculum. We have knowledgeable and experienced staff ready to advise you when you and your families need assistance. At Bespoke, you tutor with us, not for us.
We connect you with clients to match your existing schedule, so you can integrate your tutoring work with your other commitments. We have tutors who work with us full-time as well as tutors who work with us to supplement full-time jobs in education, the arts, and other fields.
At Bespoke we pride ourselves on our community. We have multiple offices in NYC and Westchester for lessons, meetings, and face-to-face interactions with a welcoming and available staff. Our mentorship program connects tutors who are just starting at Bespoke with veteran tutors for guidance and advice. Professional development seminars, social events, and annual gatherings round out the opportunities to meet and interact with the rest of the Bespoke team.
Bespoke offers competitive compensation to attract the best tutors in the city. We provide skill-development seminars on a range of subjects so tutors can keep learning as they teach. We also offer opportunities for advancement within the company in mentoring or administrative roles.
What We’re Looking For
EDUCATION, EXPERIENCE, DIVERSITY
We look for tutors with significant experience in education. Many of our tutors have been or are currently part- or full-time educators. We also look for tutors with a wide variety of life experiences, as we believe great teachers can come from many different fields. A college degree is required for consideration.
Our tutors connect meaningfully with students and their families; they inspire students to work hard and learn material that may be challenging; they communicate with families in a consistent and professional manner; and they demonstrate the skills, behaviors, and values they expect of their students.
CONFIDENCE, ADAPTABILITY, GREAT LISTENING
We look for tutors who can work with a wide range of students. Tutors must prepare well for sessions but be ready to adapt to their student’s needs on a given day. We look for tutors who are great listeners and who understand that their first impressions of a student or family may not be 100% accurate. Our tutors keep questioning and learning to constantly develop a better picture of their students.
CLARITY, INTERACTIVITY, ENTHUSIASM
We look for tutors who know how to organize thoughts, language, and content, and who know how to convey that clarity to others and confirm student understanding. Our tutors use these dynamic interactions both to teach and to demonstrate their own enthusiasm for the subject matter.
