Why Teacher’s Pet

Teacher’s Pet Educational Services, created from a desire to provide extraordinary educational experiences, offers support for teachers and parents. With options including in-school field trips, online virtual programs (video conference and field trips on demand), private tutoring and retail teacher resources and projects, we supply the tools to engage students while saving you time and resources.

As a parent and teacher, our founder and CEO, Ruth Pabst, knows how challenging it can be to engage and inspire students. Teacher’s Pet is the result of a vision that Ruth had while teaching.  Wishing there was a way to support teachers in the classroom and students with varying learning needs, Ruth launched Teacher’s Pet from her home in 2006, primarily focusing on private tutoring. One year later she began offering curriculum-based In-School Field Trips.

Since then, Teacher’s Pet has grown to offer over 200 different programs, including in-school programs for students in Alberta as well as online options for learners across Canada! With an amazing team of over 50 passionate and enthusiastic field trip presenters and tutors, our desire to provide extraordinary educational experiences to all learners remains at the forefront of what we do. Dedicated to the success of students, our approach to learning is creative, engaging, and appeals to all learning styles.

In-School Field Trips

We bring the field trip to your classroom! Get ready for an interactive experience that makes education concepts come alive for your students. Our In-School Field Trips were designed around Alberta’s curriculum and have been vetted by classroom teachers. We bring everything you need to provide a successful, differentiated learning experience to your students, saving you time, money, and the hassle of coordinating transportation.

Field Trips On Demand

Our famous programs, offered on your schedule! Field Trips On Demand provide curriculum-based, pre-recorded, and interactive videos with accompanying projects for students to create and keep. We send you access to pre-recorded video content that allows you to start and stop the video on your terms, providing a more student-centred experience based on the readiness level of your students. These curriculum-based episodes will keep your students engaged in their learning through storytelling, exploration, and creative thinking.

Video Conference

Engage your students virtually with livestream presenters, right in your classroom. These 1.5-hour programs include an exciting project for each student to create and take home. Explore a variety of educational and lively Video Conference programs that will keep your students engaged.

Support. Enrich. Inspire.

School Residencies

Teaming up with your teaching staff and administration, we will design themed workshops and a flexible time table to match your current curriculum needs. Our engaging Teacher’s Pet staff will come into your school for a set of workshops over the course of 2-4 weeks. Our approach to learning is creative, engaging, and appeals to all learning styles.

Private Tutoring

Inspire confidence and a love of learning through private tutoring. 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, and study for exams. Our certified and enthusiastic teachers and tutors are dedicated to the success of our students.
