Word lists are available in Hexco's eMentor application that speaks each word, tracks errors and shows definition, speech part and language of origin.
Sessions are prepared in advance and adapted for each individual speller. Speller and coach meet via Skype, Teams or Zoom for the quizzing/coaching sessions.

- All correspondence will take place via email and Google sheets.
- No additional resources are REQUIRED for the class, but we do recommend New Nat's eMentor or New Nat's Notes, Verbomania eMentor or Verbomania, Spelling Rules Book, Blitz eMentor or Blitz List(s), Webster Detector, etc. for studying. These are not provided with the class
