More than just a tutoring center in Fargo.
Fit Learning is not a one-size, fits all tutoring center in Fargo. 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.

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 Fargo 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.
Founder – Dr. Brenda Bratton, Ph.D
Dr. Brenda earned her doctorate in clinical psychology from Western Michigan University in 2008. She has worked as a licensed clinical psychologist at Knowlton, O’Neill & Associates since 2008. She became interested in Fit Learning in 2014 when her son was struggling with reading and math skills. She brought her son to Reno, NV and had him assessed in these domains. At this time, there was not an affiliate learning laboratory network and options were limited for remote learners for receiving Fit Learning services. Dr. Brenda requested that the Fit Learning Reno laboratory work with her remotely to coach her in how to work with her son. Beginning in 2015, she worked as her son’s learning coach in both reading and math while receiving consultation from Dr. Tim Fuller at Fit Learning Reno. This work was the basis for later developing the affiliate learning laboratories network. Dr. Brenda decided to open Fit Learning Fargo in 2018 after the positive feedback she received from her son’s reading and math middle teachers.
We We Joined the Fit Learning Network
Dr. Brenda decided to join the Fit Network after she attended her son’s middle school parent-teacher conference. She had used the Fit Learning method to coach him in reading and math skills while he was in elementary school. By the time he began middle school, he was a fluent reader and math student. When his English/reading teacher had learned about his prior struggles in reading, she was surprised at this news and interested in learning more about this method for helping other students. When his math teacher learned about his past struggles in math, she was also surprised and said that he should have been recommended for the advanced math class. It was at this moment that Dr. Brenda realized that she would have been having a very different conversation with these teachers if she and her son had not used the Fit Learning method to address her son’s academic skill deficiencies. She chose to join the Fit Network so that other students could have the same experience as her son.
