THE FIT LEARNING MISSION

At Fit Learning, our mission is to help every child realize the power of learning through our UNIQUE methodology. We’re a highly-SPECIALIZED program and an affiliate of Fit Learning – New York (www.fitlearners.com) that provides unparalleled services to every kind of student, including yours.

Our primary goal is to rapidly accelerate the learning gains of every student who walks through our doors—regardless of age, ability, or aptitude. Including students with general learning disabilities, struggling learners, and perfectly average students, we’re committed to helping all of them become proficient, confident, focused, fluent, independent, and happy. Throughout our 20-year history, we’ve dramatically improved the cognitive skills and academic performance of students with varying diagnoses:

  • Dyslexia
  • ADHD
  • Dysgraphia
  • Dyslexia
  • Learning Disorders
  • Cognitive Delays
  • Anxiety Disorder
  • Sensory Processing Disorder
  • Traumatic Brain Injuries
  • Delayed Learners
  • Autism Spectrum Disorder
  • Downs Syndrome
  • Behavioral Concerns
  • Handwriting Issues

Regardless of the diagnosis, we believe every child has the potential to excel in school, their community, and in the wider world.  We at Fit Learning are ready to help ALL types of learners unlock their potential using the latest evidence based techniques.

 

Our Roots
The Fit Learning founders spent 15+ years developing products and processes based on EVIDENCE based strategies embedded in the science of Applied Behavior Analysis, Precision Teaching and Direct Instruction. Our unique system of instruction focuses on MASTERY and MEASUREMENT which are the key distinguishing factors which sets us apart from the traditional tutoring model.

 

Fluency/Cognitive Fitness
Our sessions resemble a sport, where your child practices academic skills in a fast-paced, high-energy, 1-1 instructional session. Students at Fit are required to master the basic FOUNDATIONAL skills, before moving on to more COMPLEX skills. Educational statistics indicate that FLUENCY = success in higher levels skills with little instruction. That is, by achieving mastery it the core foundational skills, students can fluidly perform higher level, complex tasks EFFORTLESSLY and successfully.

Transformational Results
Objectively, our research indicates that combining the approach of building mastery and directly measuring individual student performance, produces academic and cognitive TRANSFORMATION at the fastest pace possible. Subjectively parents often report a tremendous boost not only in their child’s CONFIDENCE in the subject matter learned, but in areas which were never trained i.e. generativity. There are also instances when teachers and other professionals have suggested the REMOVAL of common diagnostic labels, i.e. ADHD, Anxiety Disorder upon completion of our program.

OUR RESULTS

A Year Of Growth In As Little As 40 Hours

That’s our promise. Our academic tutoring program has combined the most highly researched and tested methods into one simple, guided approach. As a result, our students frequently see one year’s worth of academic growth in as little as 40 hours, with many of our students reaching two years’ worth of improvement in the same amount of time.

In this chart, you can see the 40-hour rate of improvement comparisons (ROI) for the students who received instruction from Fit Learning versus those tested in school districts nationally. Blue bars reflect the national rate of improvement in school districts, while the orange bars reflect the average rate of improvement for students at Fit Learning.
