Joseph came to Rhode Island Tutorial and Education Services’ Summer Tutoring Programs after he found himself falling behind in his reading skills. He was losing confidence in his ability and struggling to keep up with his classmates. RITES helped him build upon his current reading level and gain tools to help him continue to improve beyond the program. His parents saw a change in a matter of weeks: Joseph was far more confident exclaiming, “I didn’t know it was that easy!” and felt a sense of community in the RITES program. His parents could not be prouder to share his success story.
Rhode Island Tutorial and Education Services’ fun and engaging summer tutoring programs are enrolling students ages K through 12. RITES’ hand-selected, certified teachers use scientifically based multisensory methodologies to maximize each session and give your student the gift of lifelong learning skills.
Parents’ Perspective: RITES Summer Tutoring Programs Give Students Tools to Succeed
An interview with Jessica & Marcus Porter, Jacob’s mother and father about the RITES’ Summer Tutoring Programs and how it helped build their son’s confidence in his reading skills.
“The first week he came home, he was saying ‘Mom and Dad, things are actually clicking!'”
“Decoding tidbits and tricks they [RITES’ teachers] were showing [him], and their patience. His eyes were opening to the little spaces he did miss. That started at the end of the first week.”
He was excited, and for a 10-year-old to be excited to go to a learning program for the summer – we were happy.
‘He Realized He Wasn’t Alone’ in struggling to read
“What’d he say? I didn’t know it was that easy, was it that easy? How did I not know that? He realized he wasn’t alone: that was a big thing for him. Everyone [in the RITES summer tutoring program] was on the same page where he was. RITES teaches exactly what kids need. No matter if they’re homeschooled or go to public school. There is so much knowledge, so many marks they have to hit.”
“That is what is offered here. Something that is a bit more intensive, but a lot more persuasive…. This is a whole thing, he picked up a whole thing by coming here. It didn’t just start with learning how to read; he was reading when he came. This program really helped him to take his time, listen to what was being taught, and apply it. It just works.”
It was nice to find a program that actually cared about the kids, and it wasn’t so much about the money and getting him in. They really want to help.
“He felt it right away, normally he is very apprehensive about new people and places, but he loves it [at RITES].”
“I want to let the donors know [RITES] is definitely worth your contribution.”
Time doesn’t lie. It always shows the truth. If you see it in the child – that’s time. Our child shows – we’re living proof. Thank you!
“We’re very grateful that we were led to your program. We believe this program was here for Joseph. We feel more confident now that he feels more confident, and he can build from what he’s learned here.”
