More than just a tutoring center in Pensacola.
Fit Learning is not a one-size, fits all tutoring center in Pensacola. 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 their individual needs.
1 year’s growth in 40 hours of instruction.
This isn’t just a tutoring center for homework help. Learners are challenged in a fast-paced, goal-oriented, 1-on-1 instruction setting with a Fit Learning coach using the only teaching method that combines learning science, precision teaching, curriculum-based measurement, and relational frame theory. We consistently see 1-2 grade levels of improvement in 40 hours.

Why Dana Started Fit Learning Pensacola
Dana is in constant awe of the transformation children undergo when taught through the Fit Learning MethodTM. It is daily inspiration seeing the profound progress that children can make in such a short period of time. Before joining the Fit LearningTM family, Dana sought out and followed research to replicate the success that Fit LearningTM had with their learners, but too often found methods leading to the most efficient educational gains were regularly dismissed and pushed to the side due to comfortability in the, “old way”. Knowing of this science, it is difficult to continue work and not teach learners too quickly become fluent in the skills they need to succeed through standardized measurement. Unable to find this in any other agency or tutoring center in Pensacola, Dana began to pursue the dream of opening Fit Learning Pensacola where she hopes to offer the same support and collaboration that creates worldwide change in the learning abilities of all that walk through our doors.
