Teacher’s Pet Educational Services is the result of a vision that Ruth Pabst, B.Ed. had while teaching. Wishing there was a way to support teachers in the classroom and students with varying learning needs, Ruth started Teacher’s Pet in September, 2006 from her home in Edmonton with a focus on private tutoring. The following September, the In-School Programs division was launched. Both divisions experienced exponential growth and then in September, 2010, Teacher’s Pet Educational Services expanded to Calgary. This company, born from a desire to provide extraordinary educational experiences, continues to have requests for its services throughout Alberta and now operates from an office warehouse in west Edmonton.

Private Tutoring

Teacher’s Pet offers exceptional homework support. You won’t find generic, levelled worksheets or a “cookie cutter” approach to our tutorials. All tutorials are one-on-one and are based upon what the student needs to be successful in the classroom. Our tutors will help you catch up, understand those difficult concepts, study for exams, and work closely with you to help you succeed.

You will work with tutors who are specialists in that subject and many of our tutors are certified, experienced teachers.

If requested, we will liaison with the classroom teacher to ensure a comprehensive approach to helping the student succeed.

Tutorials can take place in the student’s home or library. We work with a number of organizations including Catholic Social Services, Alberta Health Services and Alberta Children’s Services.

It is like having your own personal resource room teacher. We are dedicated to our student’s success!
