Read what 2017 National Spelling Bee Champion, Ananya Vinay said about Spelling eMentor:
“I got to use the eMentors as part of the PSC (Personal Spelling Coaching). They were one of the most helpful items to study … It really improved my variety of word knowledge throughout the past year. Another thing I really liked about the eMentors was that it was easy to efficiently study by starring your doubts and reviewing your mistakes. They also had a lot of tricky words that I learned as I did the eMentors. They were very beneficial to my learning.”
