Hi! I'm Sylvie Lamontagne, a high school sophomore from Denver, Colorado.
If you're looking for help and advice for spelling bees--from word lists to language patterns, and from roots and vocabulary to the competition itself--you're in the right place.
I placed 4th in the 2016 Scripps National Spelling Bee, and 9th in the 2015 Scripps National Spelling Bee. In addition, I won Spelling Bee of China's 2016 North America Spelling Champion Challenge, after which I traveled to Beijing, where I participated in the Global Champions Spelling Challenge of China, which I also won. I have coached thirteen different spellers, five of whom have participated in the Scripps National Spelling Bee. I have also pronounced for four local spelling bees. Spelling has been one of the greatest parts of my life, and I'd recommend participation in the Bee to anyone.
I hope that I can help you maximize your potential in competitive spelling! I look forward to hearing from you.
