What Parents Are Saying

N. M.

We are very pleased with the tutoring for our son, and would recommend her as well as Teachers Pet. It was a very successful experience not only in math but in study habits and tips for less stressful exams. Thank you very much.

C. B.

Thank you for a wonderful service and, most importantly, an amazing tutor. Ryan really liked working with his tutor and we are so pleased with the results he experienced this school year! We have no complaints at all! In fact Ryan achieved Honour Roll this year, for the first time!

N. Z.

Laura is doing well in school, her tutor is a great help. She understands Laura's needs and problem areas and addresses them with ease. We are very happy with our tutor and Teachers Pet.

S. M.

Our tutor has been a huge help to us. Emilia went from not being able to read at all to full reading and writing. Her confidence has increased incredibly knowing she's on par with other students. Emilia and our tutor have an amazing bond, I feel they are a perfect fit for each other. Emilia waits by the door for her when she knows its tutoring day.
I appreciate all of you for your business and hard work. I never feel our money is wasted. I am truly grateful.

K. E.

Our tutor was a caring, committed tutor. She was just perfect for Kristen. She had a sense of humour and made learning a challenging subject fun. Kristen learned much from our tutor and actually looked forward to her visits. We would highly recommend her and would request her again if ever needed.

A. B.

Our tutor has been wonderful for Dania and worked very hard with her this year. We are pleased with her progress this year and feel that her foundation skills are stronger. Thank you so much!

J. F.

Our tutor has been a really great fit for both my kiddos. They really like her and they both have expressed to me that they feel better about math and think their grades have improved! She has even helped them with studying strategies and spent some time with them on different subjects when needed. We love her!

H. D.

We have had our math tutor for many years now. I often tell other moms that my daughter learns more in a one hour session with our tutor than she learns in an entire week of math class. My daughter's confidence in her math abilities increases with every session. As a parent it can be difficult, frustrating, and stressful to try and 'help' your child in math. My daughter is much more willing and eager to learn, she leaves each session feeling confident and has a positive attitude in regards to the lessons learned that day.

D. F.

Our tutor has been a tremendous academic support to my daughter. She is friendly, professional and an excellent teacher.

T. W.

We chose Teachers Pet tutors for our daughters due to their professionalism. The program coordinators always get back to you right away either through email or by phoning. They have been very helpful in finding the 'right fit' tutor for our children. Our tutors have been very organized and work well with our kids. They have been flexible with the location for tutoring and answer any questions we have as to how they are doing. I have recommended Teachers Pet in the past and will continue to do so.

G. F.

We are incredibly happy with our tutor - she has been an excellent tutor for our daughter. The progress she has made in this last year has been outstanding.

D. L.

We have hired tutors through Teacher’s Pet on and off for 4 – 5 years and we are continually impressed with how great they are and how our son has progressed working with them. The tutor is just amazing, our son adores him and really enjoys going to his tutor sessions. The tutor is great at adjusting his teaching strategies to our son’s learning style.

J. C.

Brandon thinks his tutor is great. He is patient and explains Chemistry in a way that is understood.

C. V.

Our tutor has made a huge difference in my daughter’s math skills and with her self-confidence. Her teacher at school has noticed a difference in her abilities as well. Our tutor has a great teaching manner and my daughter enjoys her sessions every week. We hope our tutor never stops tutoring as we would love to have her throughout my daughters schooling.

A. S.

Our tutor came into a challenging situation where our daughter was far from progressing at all in Math. She was not doing or attempting to do her assignments and we were finding it difficult to motivate her. Our tutor and our daughter were able to set up a rapport and Joleen began to believe she could do math. They set up a good weekly routine and Joleen began to progress through her Math book. It began slowly as she failed her first test but as the year progressed she began to pass and excel at her tests (80%). It was very satisfying for Joleen to pass as she was motivated and believed she would pass her grade which she did! Joleen needed this math to give her the life skills she will need in the work world. We are requesting further work with our tutor this summer to give Joleen a bit of a head start for next year. Our tutor and Joleen were a great success.

V. G.

We had a great year with our tutor. We will definitely be looking to start up again come fall!

M. G.

Our tutor was very patient which we appreciated. We liked the way she taught and communicated with Matteo, he could understand what she was teaching him. Overall he did better in English and Math and we were very happy with our tutor.

R. M.

I can't speak highly enough of out tutor. Both of my children have had a very successful school year to date and our tutor has had a huge input with that success. Coming from Australia earlier in the year the kids had missed 6mths of the new school year and were struggling in all aspects. Having regular tutoring has given the kids not only confidence but has closed the gap with what the children had previously missed. I'm particularly impressed with my daughter’s progress whom had her highest math mark/ percentage to date, and previously as sad as it is to say, hadn't passed a math test! Our tutor has been tremendous and the kids love her. We have had tutors previously but nothing comes close to our tutor's professionalism and Teachers Pet.

M. D.

Shawn is progressing nicely in his subjects. We appreciate both tutors in all of their efforts and patience during their sessions with Shawn. All good things to say for both ladies. Keep up the good work!

J. L.

Seth loves his tutor and we’ve seen real progress with him. We’ve also asked her to work on his English recently. We are very happy and plan to continue with her.

V. F.

Our tutor is great! Both my girls are doing well in math and she is the reason. Huge confidence boost! Especially our one daughter as the tutor is helping her prepare for the PAT’s. Thanks, we will continue with her as long as we can!

K. S.

I have found our tutor to be consistently on time, prepared, kind, conscientious, and focused not only on the "what" of learning, but the "how", trying different strategies to support memory retention and connections with the material.

A. A.

We really appreciate our tutor, she helps Vianne apply whatever math concepts that are being covered by the teacher to everyday life circumstances. I’m a real fan of application vs rote memorization. Our tutor also has a calm, kind, clear style of teaching which I think helps Vianne. Our tutor is always checking back with Vianne to make sure she’s helping her understand the concepts. Two thumbs up; thanks a lot!

D. C.

We engaged Teacher's Pet two years ago to assist our son in regaining his focus and momentum. We were linked with out tutor and were immediately pleased with her combination of professionalism and ability to relate to our 14 yr-old. Our son is a bright kid who was simply "done" with his Jr High school surroundings - a situation that zapped him of any motivation or desire to achieve. Our tutor did an excellent job of engaging him - even if just for the one hour a week we had her in. Switch to first year of high school - still under the veil of COVID. As Hugh looked forward to a fresh start in a new school, we knew we wanted to keep out tutor on board to make sure he hit the ground running. Hugh had an excellent Grade 10 year -- enough so, that we wondered if we would still require the services of TPet. We are so pleased we stayed the course, as the two hours of focus per week in Hugh's final, and most difficult quarter, were so very well spent and productive. Back to the honours roll - and, most importantly, back to a happy level of confidence! Our massive thanks to our tutor - and to Teacher's Pet for linking us up with such a calm, kind, reassuring spirit.

H. D.

Steven passed his math class and actually aced the final! He mentioned that he absolutely could not have done it without his tutor's help. Her support and assistance helped him get through a very trying semester at MacEwan. We are so glad to have been able to turn to Teacher's Pet throughout the years for every level of math, right from Elementary to Post Secondary. I'm sure I will be in touch again if he needs to enroll in more math classes next year!
