I’m a tutor at RITES, specializing in middle and high school math and science, as well as SAT and ACT prep. I feel very fortunate to work at RITES. Directors Lisa and Halley are genuinely concerned with providing the best possible instruction for each student. They provide extensive experience, resources, and training to support their tutors in addressing any and all needs of each student.

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!

Rhode Island Tutorial & Educational Services is a wonderful organization providing incredible tutoring services by wonderful teachers. My son Matthew has dyslexia and it was Linda Giordano from "RITES" that changed not just his world around but our world as a family. With her patience and compassion and knowledge, she taught Matthew how to over come his disability but also alleviated our stress as a family, because we knew he was being tutored by some of the best experts in Rhode Island. Matthew went on to succeed in a challenging private high school and then on to college. I will always be grateful for the help we received from RITES. --Cristina Berard

Rhode Island Tutorial and Educational Services is a professional educational organization. I have worked as a tutor there for several years and have always been impressed with the knowledge, caring, and support of the directors. Programs for each student are carefully thought out and implemented. The student's needs and abilities are carefully considered when developing a program for tutoring. Rhode Island Tutorial and Educational Services is the place to contact for a student in need of educational assistance. I highly recommend this organization to any parent looking for tutoring.

I am a proud board member of Rhode Island Tutorial & Educational Services (RITES.) RITES has been serving the educational needs of students across RI and neighboring Massachusetts for many years. Their one-to-one and small group instruction is personalized and tailored for each individual. Whether a student is in need of intensive reading instruction from an Orton-Gillingham certified tutor, needs to improve study and organizational skills, or wants to prepare to take the SAT/ACT for college, RITES can provide the class and instructor that will meet each student's needs.

As a tutor for RITES for several years, I have witnessed first hand all the thought and compassion that goes into helping RITES students to succeed. The list of services available to students has expanded in recent years. These services include not only tutoring for the student, but also support for parents along the difficult path to obtaining appropriate services for their child.

I am a clinical neuropsychologist who provides evaluations for children with learning differences. I have worked with RITES for many years prior to becoming a board member, and have been consistently impressed with their high level of professional development and dedication to best practices in tutoring students of all ages. They have a very individualized approach that they use to maximize the growth of their students. I have gotten very good feedback from families who have participated with tutoring services, and am happy to be able to recommend their services.

The staff is passionate, dedicated, and focused towards making their students successful. This organization deserves the community's support and I am fortunate to have the opportunity to assist them in whatever small way I can as a board member!

Rhode Island Tutorial and Educational Services has made incredible progress in the expansion of services and programs it is offering. This past summer's program is growing and creating a lot of demand for the organization. There is a continued path for being able to offer more scholarships through fundraising efforts. I see a great amount of growth and success in the near future.
