I am very bitter about spelling.

But I like to be helpful :-)

Reading.  Reading helps you become a good speller, especially if you are a visual learner.  Good luck

Find a different target language.

I am sorry I am bitter about all the time I wasted in grammar school learning how to spell in English, a language with no intelligent spelling rules.

You are looking for something to improve it in a short time, like a key or a logical set of rules.  There are none.  English is dumb.

Ahhh the bitterness of a childhood lost in spelling books.

The hard side of English is that in order to write properly you must have experience because it's not about thinking about every single letter, it's about the feeling (as others said, there are no specific rules) therefore the only way is to write and read more. I suggest you to use spell check on Microsoft Word (and memorise the spelling).This is a good idea because it doesn't correct you, only one red line appears when something is written wrongly so you try try try and try until you get the spelling right.  Don't even think about giving up on English like others suggested because this problem can be solved. 
BTW, why doesn't Italki have spell check?

I adore smartphones with the autocorrect function and incorporated dictionaries. I always look what they suggest as a spelling. And reading helps a lot. Of course if you studied Italian, Spanish or German spelling would be easier. 

Avoid French it's almost as crazy as English.
