Fit Learning Bay Area

We’re more than just a tutoring center in Bay Area.

We transform education through customized curriculum and learning science.

Results Driven by Learning Science

More than just a tutoring center in the Bay Area.

Fit Learning is not a one-size, fits all tutoring center in the Bay Area. 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.

A center loved by the Tri-Valley and Beyond.

The Tri-Valley area is filled with growing and vibrant communities whose families know what they want and who have come to have high expectations for education and achievement of their children. We are thrilled to help all learners who come through our doors reach their highest potential!

Our Testimonials

"Our son continues to improve in math and relational concepts. He tells me that Fit Learning helps him a great deal and never puts up resistance to get here – that is half the battle! We are very pleased!"

Fit Learning Parent

"We have been very happy with our experience here! The boys are making great progress. Each instructor has been very amazing, friendly, rewarding and really reinforcing. We could not have had a better experience."

Fit Learning Parent

"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."

See one year’s growth in as little as 40 hours of instruction.


 No other tutoring center in the Bay Area has a method as fun or effective.

Fit Homeschool

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.

The Fit Learning Bay Area Team

Owner/Clinical Director – Michael R. Johnston, Ph.D., BCBA-D

Dr. Michael Johnston brings 20+ years of experience in Behavior Analysis and Education. He has worked in private consultation, supervised Behavior Consultants and run an in-home support service agency for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. For the last 14 years, Dr. Johnston has worked in the field of Special Education in California, in both public and non-public schools, and held positions in clinical, administrative, and leadership roles. Dr. Johnston has taught undergraduate and graduate courses at several universities nationally and internationally, including courses taught to students in Canada, Nevada, Wisconsin, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia.

Dr. Michael Johnston graduated from the University of Alberta (BSc. Hon.) before completing the Ph.D. program at the University of Nevada, Reno.

After having my 3rd grade child (diagnosed with ADHD) enroll with Fit Learning Reno in the 2018-19 school year, it was clear that Fit Learning vastly improved his educational trajectory and saved our family from the stress we were all feeling as a result of his struggles with school. My son’s relationship with learning had been broken – he was despondent, had a skillset full of holes in many of his foundational reading, mathematics and writing skills and had an extremely negative view of himself and his abilities. After completing his first 40 hour enrollment with Fit many of these areas of need were completely fixed or showed major progress!! Most importantly, his relationship with learning had been repaired. Finally, as a professional behavior analyst working in Education in California for the past 10 years, I always felt I wanted to do more than I could achieve in the roles working within a school district. Using the science of learning harnessed by Fit Learning’s individualized approach, which includes making academic work engaging, enriching, and fun for students, was something I knew I had to do! I am excited to bring this amazing approach to learning to many more families and students in the Bay Area!
