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

I cannot say enough positive things about RITES! My first experience with RITES was through a summer program offered at Hamilton (Orton-Gillingham-based Language Arts). My 7 year old dyslexic son made such gains in just 5 weeks that I asked his teacher, Allyson, to continue tutoring him throughout the year. He attended RITES camp again last summer and continues to work with Allyson each week. She is wonderful and my son continues to gain confidence and is now reading at grade level. Having dyslexia is quite a challenge for children in elementary school and I feel very fortunate to have found such amazing help early on in my son's life. I highly recommend RITES to all those needing a little extra support!
