Spelling Bee Tutoring

Your big moment on stage needs careful preparation. LearnThatWord makes it easy to learn lots of words quickly. Our powerful tutoring quizzes simulate the spelling bee experience. Adaptive technology keeps track of words that need more review.

A contest of minds

Spelling bees have become very popular in recent years. Movies, a successful broadway play, and a primetime TV broadcast of the Scripps National Spelling Bee have moved this tradition into the spotlight again. Teachers hold class or school competitions. Adults compete in spelling bees for entertainment or fundraising events.  Many English-speaking countries now stage their own events.

Spelling Bee prizes

At the Spelling BeeThe largest event is the Scripps National Spelling Bee. What can you win at the National Spelling Bee?
The trophy, of course, as well as over $40,000 in prizes. 

All spellers receive:
A commemorative watch from Scripps, 
Webster’s Third New International Dictionary, Unabridged on CD-ROM from Merriam-Webster, 
the Samuel Louis Sugarman Award (a $100 U.S. Savings Bond), 
plus, a cash prize from Scripps. 
These cash prizes range from $100 if you hear the bell before the Quarterfinals to $12,500 for the second place winner.

Winning, or even making it to the finals, is also a great way to get into top colleges!

Spelling Bee contestant quote

LearnThatWord’s “spelling bee” study module

Spelling bee module contains close to 30,000 typical words you may encounter at a spelling bee. It automatically includes the Consolidated Word list, previous Paideia lists, Spell It words, and words from recent National Spelling Bees.

Similar to what you experience as you go higher and higher levels in the contest, we sort words by frequency. You first study the most common, then the less common, and finally the really exotic words. In each category, words are sorted by difficulty, so you advance from easy to advanced automatically.

Any word that you didn't know or felt unsure about is added to your personal practice list. It is reviewed until you get it right over three subsequent quizzes. This may take three or many more reviews. LearnThatWord coaches you on these words until you learned them reliably.

Search our word list archive

Are you preparing for a local event? Do you plan to stage a classroom event with your students? You can easily activate one of our many spelling bee word lists from our archive. Discover thousands of ready-made word lists when you search for "spelling bee," "paideia," "spell it" or " consolidated word list".
