Sherry Grubbs

An accredited instructor at the Certified Level, Sherry was delighted to discover IEW early in her homeschooling journey. She believes it is vital to help students find their voices as authors and build confidence and skill in this essential art.

Inspired by Andrew Pudewa’s sessions at a 2021 homeschool convention, she immediately found value in the Structure and Style method and began implementing it with her young children. Writing and speaking extensively in their chosen professions, her two oldest children are now college graduates, while two others attend Purdue Fort Wayne, and one is in high school. Her four grandchildren have now fallen in love with stories, much to her delight.

In 2003, she attended one of Mr. Pudewa’s live TWSS seminars to complete her teacher training. She taught IEW’s writing, grammar, and literature courses locally in a co-op setting for five years. Currently, Sherry teaches online IEW classes and tutors privately using Zoom and Google Classroom. 

A unique feature built into Mrs. Grubbs’ writing classes is the popular book club discussions using the Center for Lit’s Teaching the Classics discussion method. These sessions emphasize discussion and thinking skills while gently introducing literary analysis that prepares students for the TRIAC argumentative essays of IEW’s Unit 9. Including these discussions also strategically provides an extra week for students to complete more challenging writing assignments.

REGISTRATION for 2024-2025 and summer 2024 will be available in March 2024. Please email for more information about online classes or private tutoring.
