Andrew Pudewa

Founder & Director

Andrew Pudewa is the founder, principal speaker, and director of the Institute for Excellence in Writing. Presenting throughout North America, he addresses—with clarity, insight, practical experience, and welcome humor—issues relating to teaching, writing, thinking, spelling, and music. His seminars for parents, students, and teachers have helped transform many a reluctant writer and have equipped educators with powerful tools to dramatically improve students' skills.

Although he is a graduate of the Talent Education Institute in Japan (Suzuki Method) and holds a Certificate of Child Brain Development, his best endorsement is from a young Alaskan boy who called him "the funny man with the wonderful words." He and his beautiful, heroic wife Robin are parents of seven, grandparents of six, and educators of their two youngest children at home in Oklahoma’s Green Country.

Andrew was interviewed by Gerald McKoy of the Homeschool Netcast Network and gives not only a little about the program, but also a little of his background. You can listen to the interview (one hour) by clicking here.
