Amateur Something or someone that is amateur is non-professional. If you remember that amateur ends in a fancy French suffix (-eur), you’ll be able to spell this word correctly in both professional and non-professional situations.

Conscientious Conscientious means thorough, careful, or vigilant. If you have a strong conscience, you will be conscientious. You can remember the conscience by breaking it into “con” and “science.” Then the similarities between conscience and conscientious will help you remember the spelling for the latter.

Harass To harass means to fatigue or to tire with repeated and exhausting efforts. Don’t “harass” your fingers by making them type extra letters on the keyboard. Harass contains only one R.

License A license is an official authorization. You can remember the C in license by thinking that you don’t always need sense (spelled with an S) to get a license.
