Learning how to spell is considered a fundamental skill, and it takes time to memorize spelling rules and exceptions.
Some helpful tips:
visualize what the word looks like, and then try to spell it
notecards in a box can make creating this reference easy and fun
create your own lists of words they find difficult to spell
However, even the most experienced editors, who are checking spelling and grammar very thoroughly, are apt to overlook certain mistakes from time to time.
To get around the problem of human error, you should put an online spell checker and grammar tool to work for you:-)
