Teacher’s Pet Educational Services has something for everyone!
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 Trip On Demand
Our famous programs, offered on your schedule! Field Trip 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.
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.
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.
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.
We understand that the core of every positive educational experience is a strong relationship. That’s why we have a team of highly dedicated people working tirelessly to ensure that your experience is remarkable every step of the way.
