Helping an adult with fraction problems

So, my mom is trying to help this black guy in his forties try to get a job that's been unemployed for a long time. That's her job doing stuff like that. So anyway, she wants me to help him learn fractions.

He has an extremely tenuous grasp on fractions, and I've worked with him a little bit so far with silly games I've found online and I don't know where to go from here. Any suggestions about websites that could teach adults math and fractions? I don't want to insult his intelligence with any stupid childrens' games that have cute furry characters and stuff. I also would be interested in a method that might not require a computer.

Kneel down to me, pathetic mortals.

Fractions are easy for some people. Not everyone.

I think I'll try Khan Academy videos.
