Emma now visits Hong Kong four times a year to meet new families and tutors.
Emma has personally recruited, interviewed and vetted each and every one of her 500+ tutors. For every successful tutor, Emma composes a 4 page profile on their background and experience to show to prospective families. Stage 8 â€" Emma sits in on occasional tutorials to monitor the tutor’s performance Stage 9 - Testimonials are regularly gathered from parents to use as feedback on our tutors Stage 10 â€" Tutor’s pay rate is reviewed monthly to reflect referrals generated and positive feedback Beyond academics, qualifications and tutoring/teaching experience, Emma seeks tutors with charisma in person as well as a drive to exceed expectations and excitement at the prospect of making a difference to a child’s educational journey. On interviewing the tutor, Emma seeks: Since every assignment is so unique, Emma ultimately hire tutors with different teaching styles intentionally â€" so as to have tutors on the team who can cater to a wide range of learning objectives, learning styles and client preferences. For every successful applicant, Emma composes a 4 page profile on his/her background and experience which is used to show to prospective families. Having been sent a tutor profile, families are given the opportunity to interview the tutor via telephone or skype before committing to a session. Example tutor profiles can be found on the website. Only 15% of those who apply to Bespoke Tuition, on average, are called for interview. Emma deliberately keeps the team small so as to retain quality and offer the very highest standard of tuition. As a small business which has grown organically, with only around 50 tutors working at any one time, Emma knows each and every one of her team and regularly speaks, emails and meets with them to ensure the tuition is going smoothly. Emma has sent her tutors to work on residential tuition assignments in Europe, USA, Asia, Africa and the Middle East. Having been a tutor herself for four years before founding Bespoke Tuition, Emma directly witnessed the importance of ‘a good fit’ between tutor and student. Some of the many elements Emma takes into account are noted below: If for any reason Bespoke Tuition does not already have a tutor who is the right fit for a family’s requirements, Emma actively headhunts candidates and/or collaborates with top partner agencies to source the right fit. As an age guide, Emma would personally advise against tuition below the age of 7 years unless a special learning need, illness or language barrier exists. Ultimately, Emma and her team sincerely care about the tuition they provide. If there is any service you would like to see Bespoke Tuition offer which is not mentioned above, Emma would love to hear from you. Managing Director of Bespoke Tuition: Emma Storey

Our Consultants

Bespoke Tuition was founded in London by Emma Storey in 2010, previously a full time private tutor herself and member of the International Tutoring Association.
Emma spent five happy years at Oundle School before pursuing a degree in Natural Sciences from Durham University (2.1). Whilst she no longer tutors herself, Emma has previously accompanied families to France, Switzerland and Hong Kong whilst tutoring their children across a range of exam levels and curriculums including: 11+, 13+, Common Entrance, IB and US entrance exams including  SSATS. She has guided children successfully into competitive UK and US schools including St Pauls, Godolphin & Latymer and Francis Holland. Having grown the business organically, Emma now acts as an agent for an exclusive team of top quality tutors and mentors. Her personal tutoring philosophy is centred on building confidence, reinforcing study skills and offering the tools with which a child can independently flourish on leaving their tutor behind. A believer in the value of active and practical learning, Emma recruits tutors who can draw out and nurture the potential of their students. E very tutor is personally selected and vetted by Emma; she aims to provide the highest standard of personalised tuition by building long-lasting relationships with both families and tutors. OUR TUTORS Please visit 'Our Tutors' page to view the profiles of a sample of some of the carefully selected tutors on our high-achieving team. We currently have around 200 tutors on our database all of whom Emma has selected from interview and testing. Approximately 50 of these tutors actively work for Bespoke Tuition at any one time. Each tutor has their own specialisms by way of subjects, exams for which they prepare students and skills they are experienced in developing. When a family requests a tutor, Emma selects a tutor to present who is well suited to the student's academic needs and objectives.Â
