More than just a tutoring center in Atlanta.
Fit Learning is not a one-size, fits all tutoring center in Atlanta. We help our learners build fluency in core academic skills by combining learning science, precision teaching, and curriculum-based assessment. The result is learners who are confident, possess the ability to expertly perform in any classroom environment, and who acquire a newfound capacity for learning.
Curriculum & approach designed specifically for your learner.
An expert conducts a comprehensive skills assessment to identify your learner’s fluency in a range of core skills we’ve identified as drivers of academic success. Then, we develop a curriculum and approach, so every learner builds the true mastery of skills for life-long learning. It doesn’t matter if your learner is gifted and talented, struggling, average, or learning disabled; our approach is scientifically proven to meet your child’s needs.
1 year’s growth in 40 hours of instruction.
This isn’t just a tutoring center for homework help. A Fit Learning session is a fast-paced, goal-oriented, high energy instructional interaction with a Fit Coach, who is extensively trained and certified in the principles of learning science. The experience fundamentally transforms a child’s academic aptitude and overall cognitive abilities. We consistently produce 1-2 grade levels of improvement in 40 hours – something standard tutoring in reading, math, writing, logic, and language simply cannot achieve.

"“I can’t believe the growth we’ve seen in the last 8 months! Not only have her math skills improved but she also has so much confidence in the classroom – and it has spread to all areas of her development. We have been thrilled not only with her progress but also the short amount of time in which we have seen this growth. It’s like you’ve flipped a switch inside her.”"
"“All three of my children have become better students, have more confidence and have a better understanding of education after Fit. It’s been a lifesaver and I honestly feel they would have been lost in the school system had we not found Fit.”"

Fit Learning Atlanta Tutoring Center Curriculum
The school environment can often be challenging for a child. Sometimes, the challenge is so great that its detrimental effects outweigh the benefits. Additionally, there are times when a school placement fails to maximize a child’s full potential. In these cases, a homeschool placement is recommended. When choosing Fit homeschool, parents elect through their school district to homeschool their child. Fit then provides homeschool support and supplementation in core skill areas. Children attend Fit sessions from two to six hours per day three to five days per week and receive intensive one-on-one academic and cognitive training.
