Reviews for Rhode Island Tutorial & Educational Services

Rating: 5 stars  

I contacted RITES concerning tutoring (writing and math) and SAT prep. for my two sons. We had a very thorough meeting with RITES to discuss our needs. It was clear at the meeting that RITES was very focused on matching each of my sons to the right tutor. Not only did the boys benefit from the tutoring sessions they also enjoyed their time with each tutor. It was a very positive and beneficial experience. The tutors were very qualified and really understood my sons. I cannot recommend them enough!

RITES has been an exceptional resource for my family. My 7-yr old daughter has dyslexia and struggled greatly in school before she was introduced to the multi-sensory educational techniques used by RITES and her amazing tutor. We started with RITES one year ago and today she is reading at or above grade level in first grade. And she has actually enjoyed the journey!

I have been very pleased with the programs offered by RITES. My son, who has dyslexia, has maintained skills during the summer by attending the five-week OG program last year, and the mathematics and written expression program this past summer. He is currently having a once-a-week session with a tutor to keep him on track, as his school has dismissed him from his in-school resource help because he has done so well. My high school age daughter enjoyed the study skills workshop offered by RITES before school began. She feels she learned some great organizational skills that prepared her for 9th grade. I have recommended RITES to a number of friends for a variety of academic challenges.

My daughter has been receiving a multi-sensory spelling program for dysgraphia with RITES for the past 8 months. When I initially called RITES, I immediately felt at ease with their knowledge of this condition and the services that were available to remediate it. Since starting the program, my daughter has made significant improvement in spelling and has also made tremendous gains in her confidence with her writing. Her tutor makes the sessions fun and my daughter loves going. Our experience with RITES has been wonderful and their services are highly recommended.

RITES has been a game changer for our family. My oldest daughter is dyslexic and has continued to struggle in school and with her confidence. She went to one of the several camps offered through RITES this past summer. She had no interests in any "school" camp and promised she would not participate, and they couldn't , make her. After day 1, she could not wait to return to camp with her new friends and teacher, in fact she was very sad when it was over. The work she produced at camp was amazing and I could not even believe how confident and proud she was to share everything with all of us. Through camp she connected with 1 of her two current RITES tutor. She looks forward to working with her tutor every week. The academic difference is great, but the confidence they have helped her to find again is what has made the biggest difference. She believes in herself and knows she is capable of great work. We feel so lucky to be able to work with everyone at RITES.

My son participated in the RITES summer program at Hamilton this past summer. The program and staff were amazing. Despite having to spend 5 weeks of his summer in school, there was not a single morning where he was not excited and happy to go. In just 5 weeks he made significant and measurable improvements that have carried over into this school year. He continues to get tutored by RITES weekly and we are so thankful that such an amazing service was available to us.
