For the past nine years, Fred has spoken at numerous homeschool conventions: from Arkansas to Texas, Missouri, New York, and Oklahoma. The majority of his presentations have been mathematical in nature, seeking to help homeschool parents more effectively teach mathematics to their children. Additionally, Fred has made a number of presentations on more pastoral topics, aimed at encouraging homeschool parents, particularly fathers, in making their homeschool experience as effective and rewarding as possible.
