Bespoke Education Inc.

Mission

Bespoke's mission is to promote and provide access to and equity in K-12 school education for traditionally disadvantaged and underserved students in charter and public schools, and to promote diversity in teaching and tutoring. Bespoke is registered as a Benefit Corporation in NYS, and we have amended our company charter to focus a significant part of Bespoke’s resources on work with students from charter schools, public schools, and underserved communities. Our programs include: Tutoring and teaching services for standardized test preparation and K-12 school academic subjects to charter and public schools using a “sliding scale” pricing model that meets the needs of those schools and their students; Training and support services that will enhance charter and public schools’ guidance services for secondary school and college applications and such students’ knowledge about applications and admissions processes; Tutors of Color Initiative focuses on the recruitment, retention, and support of an ongoing cadre of tutors and teachers of color.

Program Description

Bespoke provides curriculum and tutoring support for schools and students in Grades 3-12; we have developed curricula for and run small- and large-group classes (from 5-25 students per cohort) in elementary and middle school math and ELA (English), SAT and ACT prep, AP prep, and more. Bespoke works closely with school administrators to schedule classes, group students, assess progress, and coordinate curriculum. We are able to quickly create customized programs for each school based on their needs, and we can run live, synchronous, in-person or remote classes during the school day, after school hours, or on weekends.
