Words cannot express my gratitude toward RITES. My son was NOT progressing at school, even with added resources. In one year tutoring with rites, my son was flying through reading levels. We are now approaching year two, He is almost to grade level. I feel that the services RITES offers are a life saver for my son. He could have given up on his education. He was falling through the cracks at his school. Rites (and especially his tutor Jeanne) have helped his success , not only in reading but writing, spelling, handwriting, self efficacy, and most importantly self esteem. What RITES does is amazing, nothing short of a miracle.

As a tutor, I love working for Rhode Island Tutorial because everything we do is student-centered. From the first moment we meet, we get to know the student's challenges, goals--and interests. This allows us to tailor our tutoring sessions and enables our students to get the most out of their time with us.

We help our students develop skills and accomplish specific tasks. And by always focusing on where they are and what they can achieve, we support them in developing the self-confidence that enables them to become more active learners and more enthusiastic scholars.
