Fit Learning is not a one-size-fits-all tutoring center in St. Louis.

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.

An expert conducts a comprehensive skills assessment to identify your learner’s fluency in a range of core skills identified as drivers of academic success.Then, we develop a curriculum and approach for every learner that builds 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 love being a part of this vibrant city its rich cultural offerings. You’ll find us enjoying everything from world-class museums, performing arts, the St. Louis zoo, dining in the growing restaurant scene, and our swingin’ jazz scene.

""In October 2018, my wife and I enrolled our 9 year old son, who is on the autism spectrum, in St. Louis Fit Learning reading program. Admittedly, I was initially very skeptical of Fit Learning based on the limited information available about the program, and certainly had my doubts based on our lack of success with other hourly tutoring programs. Fortunately, my wife convinced me to take a chance on Fit. My wife refers to the progress our son has made as "miraculous", but I think that Janice and her team have very high expectations of the program, and are committed delivering on the Fit promise of excellence. So far, she and her team have done just that.""Ted L.,
""Fit Math has been an amazing experience for our daughter! Coach Janice and Coach Rhonda have helped her develop a strong foundation that just isn't possible in the school setting. She is happier and more confident than we ever could have hoped for. Thank you, Fit Learning St. Louis.""Kevin A.,
""Fit Learning works” is ALL I have to say! [Our son] was stuck at the same kindergarten reading level for the last 2.5 years. We tried different reading programs, different apps, tutors, and Learning Centers. It was not clicking. He was starving to read. I knew we just had to find the right program for him. That’s when we discovered Fit Learning St. Louis which is new to St. Louis but started in Nevada. After 100 hours of tutoring [our son] is close to a second grade reading level. He is reading everything! Not only are we seeing an increase in reading but with attention, processing, recall, and most of all, confidence. On top of all the progress, he’s also found a new passion. A whole new world has opened up for [our son] and the possibilities are endless!!!”"Nicole L,

Fit Learning St. Louis 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.
