Diane DiMemmo is a former elementary teacher and current tutor for struggling readers. She developed many hands-on reading games for her active classroom learners that worked equally well during home tutoring sessions. The parents of her students noticed the positive results so they began using the same strategies at home with their other children. At their request, Diane compiled all of her reading games and routines into a book titled THE READING HOUSE, which is now available on Amazon at http://amzn.to/2bQJrp5.
