Scott is a highly experienced spelling bee coach with nine years of experience tutoring. He takes on between four to six elite spellers for regular coaching. Dependent on availability, he also offers one-off diagnostic tests and more ad hoc tutoring arrangements, and he is planning on releasing a series of video modules for purchase. You can learn more about his tutoring here, you can read testimonials here, and you can contact him directly here. Words of Wisdom: Keys to Success in the Scripps National Spelling Bee was the first spelling bee resource to be written by a recent competitor.

It has a wealth of preparatory material, including over 12,000 bee words, tables and observations of over 50 languages, in-depth coverage of trouble spots like -ible/-able and -ant/-ent, over 100 focused exercises, many practice spelling tests and bees, an outline of what questions to ask onstage and other advice about bees, advice to coaches and parents, the thoughts of prior champions, a detailed discussion of what it’s like at the National Spelling Bee, and an extensive vocabulary section.
