Review for Rhode Island Tutorial & Educational Services (RITES), Pawtucket, RI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Over the past three years we have struggled to find the appropriate support for our son. Due to a learning disability, our son struggled with the basic foundational skills in reading and other areas, which threatened his self-confidence and self-esteem.

When we started the 5 week “Code Breakers” class, this past summer, I did not have overly high expectations in regards to results.

Immediately, upon commencement of summer school, we saw a different child. A child that was eager to learn, excited each day about making the 45-minute drive to the school. Never was there a complaint of, “I don’t want to go.” To the contrary he was hungry to get to school each day to sponge up as much as he could. This was a full 180 degree turn in our child and his attitude, for which we are immensely appreciative to RITES for accomplishing.

I cannot compliment the staff and the teaching system at RITES enough. As a parent that is very engaged with our child’s education, the staff and administration showed great interest and left us feeling that they were just as much invested if not more in our son education and his improvement, which was FANTASTIC.

Finally, we felt as though we had found a true educational partner.

At the end of each week, we would receive a concise report summarizing the accomplishments of the week. The professionalism and attention to detail, exceeded expectations.

Thanks to the RITES/Hamilton Summer Program, our son's confidence has grown dramatically. He now sits down to read and attacks words with determination.

RITES, took a child that had been turned off to education and learning and taught him that learning was not only fun but did not need to be overly challenging also.

Thank you, RITES, for all the support this summer!!!
