Teaching Tree’s mission is to promote life-long learning by embodying the principles of quality and value.
Quality is defined as the adherence to science and maintaining high ethical standards in the pedagogical process without losing empathetic focus on the client. Value is defined as the efficient use of resources by placing effective scientific teaching practices to optimise the number of learning opportunities per any given time.
Teaching Tree’s employees get things done by engaging in a multi-dimensional problem-solving process and data analysis which require self-reflective practice, collaboration, creativity and openness. Our staff learns both from success as well as miraculous mistakes which we define as the courage to go beyond our current comfort zone of what we know and do well.
Our approach is valid as long as it leads to effective actions and meaningful growth, if not – we adapt and modify our programs in response to the environmental feedback. Teaching Tree sprouted in the field of applied behavior science and naturally is rooted in functional contextualism which predicts and changes behavior with ‘precision, scope, and depth’.
