The National Spelling Bee is only two months away and Hexco's Spelling Crash Course can help you make the best of the remaining time to study.
Hexco's annual six-week Spelling Crash Course for National Spelling Bee contestants commences at the end of March through mid-April. Once the required information and training meeting takes place, students enrolled in this course can learn how to study faster by studying smarter. Our coaches are trained to utilize techniques that have proven to be successful since 1983.
Sessions are prepared in advance and adapted for each small "class" and lengthy study lists are assigned on a weekly basis. Students are engaged through quizzing via phone and/or video conference calls and emails; they also gain invaluable experience by taking written practice tests that are available only to Crash Course students. Participants in this course learn how to optimize their study time while developing spelling skills that can last a lifetime.
