As part of our Meet the Cast lineup, Yvette Hampton sits down with Andrew Pudewa, IEW’s founder and principal speaker, who has spent the last 3 decades speaking and writing about issues related to teaching, writing, thinking, spelling, and music with clarity, insight, practical experience, and humor.

Lessons Learned in 30+ Years of Teaching - Andrew Pudewa, Part 3

Watch this full conversation on our YouTube channel.

Andrew Pudewa is the founder and principal speaker of the Institute for Excellence in Writing. Presenting around the world, he addresses issues relating to teaching, writing, thinking, spelling, and music with clarity, insight, practical experience, and humor. 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 wonderful, heroic wife, Robin, have homeschooled their seven children and are now proud grandparents of eleven, making their home in Northeastern Oklahoma’s beautiful green country.

Andrew Pudewa’s mission is to equip teachers and teaching parents with methods and materials which will aid them in training their students to become confident and competent in various modes of written and oral communication.

Join Yvette HamptonAby Rinella, and Andrew Pudewa for the second half of their discussion on how to cultivate an entrepreneurial, or georgic, aptitude in our children. The future of freedom may depend on it!

Many of us realize that we value home education not only because it often results in better academics, superior social environments, and enriched family life, but because it builds a better community and country. The result of true liberal education —a freedomship education— will be not only young men and women who know how to think and communicate but who think evangelically and entrepreneurially.

A listener asks, "How do you motivate the daydreamer to buckle down and complete their assignments quickly but well so that they can have more free time to pursue their passions. We’ve tried everything and even a scaled back assignment will take all day because she has no drive to finish. Do we just have to nag?"
