Let me help you learn coding 101 and then teach it at home or in your classroom.

Course Instructor

Hello!  My name is Fred Aebli, or as my students call me….”Mr. Fred”.  

In the video above I talk about the stress of preparing to teach something new.  Yes, it is fun, challenging, exciting but it can also be daunting. This course gives you everything you need to teach in the classroom or at home.

You also get access to me.  I will answer all your questions to help you teach coding and get kids excited about learning how to program and peak their interest in technology.

Learning how to code can seem intimidating but I want to be your guide as I help you explore what coding (eg. programming) is in this course.  We use a great tool called Scratch.  It lays the foundation for learning any of the programming languages in our world.

Let me use my two decades of teaching experience as a university teacher and technology consultant to help begin laying the foundation of a great skill, develop critical thinking skills, understand coding, and have some fun.

Student Reviews

As teachers we never expect anything from our students except to give their best effort.  However, from time to time we do hear from our students and those we are helping.  I am always humbled by their kind words….

” For all my moms and dads out there who’d like to introduce their littles to coding – Mr. Fred is the best of the best (and a damned awesome person to boot)!!  “

Lisa D. G.

” Whether you’ve never coded before or you have but just want to formalize your tech skills, Mr. Fred starts at the basics for a comprehensive perspective and a thorough grasp on fundamental concepts that you will utilize later in your development courses or individual pursuits.   “

Nicole S.

Former Student

” Learning from Mr. Fred is not your traditional “hold on tight and learn lots”. He has a way of captivating his students, and getting them just as excited about the subjects as he is.   “

Frequently Asked Questions

What experience do I need to succeed in this course?


You should be familiar with a computer – using the mouse, clicking and dragging, simple addition and subtraction.  Other than that no, prior coding experience is necessary!

What materials do you provide?

I have used many different tools and templates when I teach or tutor.  In this course I provide .pdf’s, Word Docs, and a few tools to download and use.  Some are for graphic editing and some help create an idea.

Is it only a recorded Microsoft Powerpoint?

No. Period.  I do video tutorials and video talks.   MS Powerpoint is great for some thing but I have been teaching a while and I think how I package this is a better approach.  However, if you want to talk about how I can roll it into a a MS Powerpoint….contact me!!

Are you really available to answer questions?

Yes.  After you enroll, we can connect via email, our GetMeCoding Facebook Community, or arrange a call or video chat.

Let me give you all the pieces I use in my classrooms and tutoring that created great students.
