More than just a tutoring center in Washington DC
Fit Learning is not a one-size, fits all tutoring center in Washington DC. 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 Washington DC
We love being a part of our nation’s capital. The city and its suburbs make up a dynamic region populated by people with diverse cultural backgrounds, and much of what they do has a ripple effect throughout the country. We love our history, museums, and access to world class events.
We serve many of Washington DC’s school districts including District of Columbia Public Schools, Arlington County Public Schools, Alexandria City Public Schools, and Montgomery County Public Schools. Our students commonly reside in Dupont Circle, Adams Morgan, Columbia Heights, Shaw, Georgetown, Woodley Park, Kalamora Heights, Cleveland Park, Capitol Hill, Wesley Heights, Chevy Chase, Brookland, Arlington, Alexandria, Foggy Bottom, and Lanier Heights.
After departing Fit, our learners often go on to attend our great local universities including George Washington University, Georgetown University, American University, Howard University, and the University of Maryland!

"“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.”"

Fit Learning Washington DC 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.

Why Marc Joined the Fit Learning Network
Marc’s experiences in the education system gave him insight into both the sheer number of students that are left behind as a result of our current methods of instruction, but has also allowed him to gain an intense appreciation for moments when kids succeed. The Fit Learning MethodTM has proven for Marc to be one of the most impressive educational systems he’s encountered. Along with support from Dr. Josh Pritchard, Marc spent over a year becoming proficient at the implementation of the model and has consistently seen impressive gains with the students he has worked with regardless of their age or disability. He is incredibly excited to bring this model to Washington DC and continue to work to transform the lives of as many students as possible.
