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

"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."
