Spelling program user feedback
Lincoln gets ten out of ten every week
"Prior to Lincoln starting to use
Personal Best Spelling™ he was getting, on average, only two out of
ten words right in his weekly spelling test at school. Within one
week of using Personal Best Spelling™, Lincoln got ten out of ten
in his weekly spelling test and he has continued to get ten out of
ten, each and every week."
It's like the teacher I never had
"I left school at 15 not knowing how to spell simple words
like 'any', 'there', 'their', 'dancing', 'colour', 'become', 'because',
'believe', 'open', 'once', 'days of the week or month'. Since I’ve
been working with Personal Best Spelling™ improvement in my spelling
has been unbelievable. At 47 years old I thought I was just thick
as two planks. Not the case. I have a learning brain and I am enjoying
it. It's like a teacher I never had."
Your program gave Marian confidence and method
"Your program gave Marian the confidence and the method of
how to learn and remember her spelling words. This in turn greatly
improved her reading ability. Marian's confidence in herself has
helped her to believe in herself."
100% on his weekly tests
"After beginning to use the Personal Best Spelling™ program,
my son has successfully gotten 100% results on his weekly tests.
I have recommended your product to others and hope that they find
the success that my son has."
The only tutor (including human) that has helped him
"I wanted to take a minute to let you know how much your program
has helped our son. He is 11 and in the 5th grade. He has struggled
with spelling since at least 3rd grade. Your program is the only
tutor (including human) that has helped him."
Jonathan immediately experienced success
"Many tutors working in adult literacy programmes are often
faced with learners who are showing limited progress despite everyone's
best efforts .... This was the case of Jonathan, a mature learner
in Galway, Ireland. Following a few brief Old Way/New Way® workshops
with Jonathan he was immediately experiencing success and able to
self-correct. Jonathan is now able to remember the spelling of words
months after being learned, which previously would have been forgotten
So much less stressful for teachers
"The greatest thing about Old Way/New Way® is the
self-correction children do. It's such an amazing thing to say to
a kid, 'Can you see any Old Ways? ... Now, can you do the New Way
for me?' and then they select their Old Way and do the New Way all
by themselves without me doing a thing except ask those two questions.
Old Way/New Way® is so much less stressful for teachers.
I no longer get frustrated when some children have so many errors
to correct. The notion of a 'dumb child' disappears and instead you
know that they simply have more resistant Old Ways."
We recommend it (Department of Education)
In 1985 the Commonwealth Department of Education employed the services
of Personal Best Academy™ on behalf of several Aboriginal students.
In a letter of referral dated February 5, 1986, the Education Officer
"Most of the cases were with secondary level students where
the intervention techniques with English and mathematics problems
proved most beneficial to all the students. Further to this, the
techniques proved remarkable in the case of a young adult who had
previously been struggling to hold a position in the Public Service.
This young person has now assumed increasingly more difficult and
complicated tasks and aspires to permanent employment and promotion.
I would recommend the programme highly on the results I have seen
in only one year."
