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 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.

High quality materials and support for the tutoring staff is the key to this great organization.

I have been a tutor for Rhode Island Tutorial & Educational Services for the past few years. I am a special education teacher specializing in learning disabilities and Orton- Gillingham multisensory reading approach. I continue to be impressed by the high quality tutoring that is offered by RITES.
The co-directors have expertise and hands on experience in the field. They are professional and offer support to their tutors. Students and tutors are matched by needs and expertise. This is a rewarding teaching experience.

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.

As a RITES tutor, I have seen the great care the RITES administration takes in setting students up for success. They provide a personal consultation with the student, family and tutor where concerns are discussed in detail.
RITES hires expert teachers and provides effective instructional tools. Tutoring is tailored to the individual student and progress is closely monitored. As a team, we are committed to a positive outcome for each of our students.

I rely on RITES regularly. I refer parents, teachers, and tutors and I am never disappointed. They understand learning differences and they communicate effectively with all interested parties. Their tutors and teachers are well trained. The two co-directors, Lisa Bigney and Halley Lavenstein, supervise tutors effectively and administrate programs such as the summer school at The Hamilton School at Wheeler very very well! Thank you, RITES!

As a tutor working with RITES, I have seen seriously struggling learners begin to bloom with their highly individualized, student-centered approach to learning. All students, whatever their financial or educational situations may be, are genuinely valued which leads to wonderful outcomes for students and families.

As a lawyer, I work with families to get children the special education services that they need. RITES did an absolutely amazing job with a client of mine. He made dramatic progress working with RITES tutors, making years of gains in a period of a year. The RITES staff worked closely with his mother and the school district to provide him with services. They provided tremendous insight and were very flexible about increasing services and recommending outside services when appropriate.
