Spelling Bee online workshops are offered in two levels: Novice and Intermediate. These sessions are designed as a parent / child workshop. The sessions are lengthy for some of the younger children and we recommend that at least one parent is present during the entire duration of the session. Parents can make the decision on which session to join, or they may choose to join both. Please note that there could be some things that are common between the Novice and Intermediate sessions. The spellers registered for Intermediate session should have attended the session for Novice and/or have had previous spelling bee experience. The workshop for Intermediate level will not be covering some of the foundation level topics as it is assumed that the spellers registered for this level have a basic understanding of the spelling bees.

Spelling Bee online workshop are conducted by eminent coaches such as Mirle Shivashankar (Father and coach of Spelling bee champions – Vanya Shivashankar- 2015 Scripps National Bee and Kavya Shivashankar- 2011 Scrips National Bee champion) and assisted by past Spelling Bee winners.
