My name is Fred, I live in Dyer, IN. I am the Technology Director at an area high school, and I teach high school and college level computer apps courses. I have worked with elementary through high school students on reading, English, math and history as well. I have a BS in Information technology from Purdue, and a Master's in Teaching from Calumet College.

Students often need more than the standard lecture to truly understand the concepts taught in school. I tailor the activities to the needs of the student, since different students learn best in different ways. I often use strategic questions to help my students think up solutions with my guidance, which gets them used to thinking in a logical problem solving manner. I enjoy tutoring and helping others achieve their goals.
