Review for Rhode Island Tutorial & Educational Services (RITES), Pawtucket, RI, USA
Unfortunately, I would not recommend RITES. We have worked with RITES on several occasions. My son had a couple of great tutors a few years through RITES and, more recently, a couple that we were not impressed with. Although he had experienced tutors with true dedication a while back we did not have the same experience the last couple of times. The last two tutors had other positions and tutoring was not a priority for them - very disappointed. Look elsewhere!
All of our tutors are dedicated teachers. We are saddened when we cannot successfully tutor a student. When this family returned to tutoring under different circumstances than previously, we tried for months to make the tutoring work and volunteered many hours of our time to try to resolve the difficulties. It can be hard for families to hear the message that we are unable to tutor their child. We believe the student at this time needed a different type of support than we provide.
