student asking question

What does "spelling tips" mean here? Does it mean "spelling error correction"?


Native speaker’s answer


"Spelling tips" are tricks, rhymes, and games that help a person remember how to spell a word. For example, when I was a child, I had a difficult time spelling the word business. My teacher taught me a spelling trick that helped me learn and remember it. She told me to say BUS-I-NESS. Learning to say the word business this way helped me to remember how to spell this word. Ex: The teacher used different spelling tips to teach her students how to spell. Ex: I before E, except after C is a very common spelling tip that children learn. Ex: Desert and dessert are very similar in spelling. A spelling tip is the word dessert has two s's because you want more and more!
