Rhode Island Tutorial & Educational Services

Who We Are

Transforming Struggling Students Into Successful Learners

Rhode Island Tutorial & Educational Services (RITES) transforms students’ visions of themselves, enabling them to realize their potential as lifelong learners and successful contributors to society.

RITES helps students of all ages – from kindergarten to high school to adults – with personalized, 1-to-1 tutoring to overcome the challenges of today’s learning environment so they can achieve lifelong success, whether it’s improved reading, executive function skills, or math skills. in the summer, in addition to 1-to-1 tutoring, RITES offers small group summer classes ranging from literacy (reading and writing) to math to study and organizational skills in order to help students make gains in their abilities over the summer break.

By request from satisfied parents, RITES has expanded offerings to include enrichment programs and tutoring in a single subject. For example, if a literacy student’s older middle-school or high school sibling needs help in math, Algebra, SAT preparation, RITES serves both.

What We Do

Rhode Island Tutorial & Educational Services (RITES)began in 1997 with a singular goal to serve students’ more complex learning challenges; the ones that require more than group tutoring, working with an untrained adult, or afterschool help. RITES serves those whose children struggle with diagnosed learning differences.

RITES’ specialists work with students with Dyslexia, Language Disabilities, Attention Deficit Disorder, and Executive Function Issues. These certified teachers have experience and training in Orton-Gillingham, Project Read, and other proven, multisensory, systematic approaches.

Rhode Island Tutorial & Educational Services (RITES) is a local, non-profit organization specializing primarily in 1-to-1 tutoring, but also small-group summer programs in partnership with local schools, and advocacy support in Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts.  RITES is a Rhode Island-based nonprofit dedicated to serving a diverse population of students and their learning challenges. RITES is proud to be Rhode Island’s resource for lifelong learning success.
