I have been a math/science/study skills tutor at RITES for nearly 2 years, and have enjoyed immensely working with the dedicated RITES staff. I have been very impressed with their commitment to provide each and every student with the resources and help that they require. They have provided me with valuable advice and resources on many occasions when I've had to deal with challenging situations.

I am a math/science tutor, and have tutored students at RITES for about a year. I have really enjoyed working with the co-directors, and have been very impressed by the resources RITES has available, including textbooks and learning materials, as well as training for tutors. Lisa Bigney has really helped me personally by providing sessions in teaching organizational and study skills so that I can better serve my students. RITES is sincerely committed to the success of every student!

I have been a RITES tutor for several years, and I continue to be impressed with the professionalism of its staff and the quality of services that RITES provides. The tutors are dedicated, highly skilled educators who have a genuine interest in their students. The professional development for tutors and the informational workshops for parents are always high quality. RITES continues to be an invaluable resource for students and their families throughout the area.

I chose to become a Board member for RITES because I was incredibly impressed by the passion and talent of the founders (Lisa & Halley) as well as the incredible work the tutors at RITES do on a daily basis with the children. My own children have benefited from their services, and I highly recommend them to anyone looking for reasonably priced, skilled tutoring services. They will accommodate a variety of needs, and are helpful beyond expectation.

RITES knows how to reach different learners and the kids thrive! They work together and with parents to bring the best results for our kids.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Expand! Teach other teachers how to do what they do.

The services that RITES provides to young individuals in the greater Providence area is wonderful. They have many qualified professionals on their staff that make a difference in the academic lives of youngsters. In addition, the educators help students learn to believe in themselves, find strategies to overcome obstacles in learning and move forward int their academics.

There is no other program like RITES in Rhode Island. They are an authentic group of professionals who genuinely love what they do. The tutoring services are top notch; care is taken in both pre and post assessments; individual goals are developed along with a plan to meet them; and students learn using multi-sensory resources, including lots of games. The summer program takes all of these strengths and puts them together in a fun program filled with lots of learning and confidence-building.

RITES goes above and beyond expectations with all children, all of the time. I have referred students to their programs always with amazing results. they truly understand dyslexia and other language-based learning challenges set within the child development context. Their staff is a top notch group who never seems to forget that the child is at the center of everything. 5 Stars is not a high enough rating for this organization.

RITES offers the individualization that many students need to succeed. Each lesson is designed so the learner meets with success and makes steady progress over the course of the year. There is no set program or one size fits all!
