Spelling Tutor Trial Results
Children's spelling improved by an average of
10.5 months in a single term
Spelling Tutor teaches the 1,000 most common words, which is 90% of the words we use every day.
In order to spell correctly you need to memorise how to spell each word. You can't use phonics to know if sheep should be spelled sheep or sheap, you have to remember.
Writing is the best way to learn spellings, so Spelling Tutor dictates words and sentences for children to write out by hand.
The children that have used Spelling Tutor have absolutely loved it! We’ve found it particularly useful for our older children that have done all our other interventions to death.
