Bio: Hi, I’m Andrew Barnett. I grew up in Northeast Arkansas, about an hour outside of Memphis and am the oldest of five. I moved from Jonesboro to Fayetteville to attend the University of Arkansas, where I graduated in 2013. Immediately after finishing undergrad, I moved to Boston and started grad school. Boston was far too cold, however, so I took a semester off grad school and went to Costa Rica. After spending some time in the sun, I moved back to Boston and finished my grad school coursework at Harvard. A couple months ago, I again escaped the frigid north by moving to Dallas, where I am currently finishing my master’s thesis while working as a Business Analyst. I didn’t really discover that I loved teaching until I was in grad school. I volunteered to spend the summer term at Harvard, a time when high school students from all over the world come to Boston to take summer courses. I saw the opportunity to begin teaching and mentoring high school students and have loved doing so ever since.

Teaching Style: My teaching style is tailored to the individual student. Some learn best from listening, some from watching, and others from tackling the problem head on. I always ask students why they chose the answer they did, in order to better understand where they came from. I have found that using the Socratic Method (constantly asking why) is the most effective method way to ensure the student really understands the content or concept. Endless lecturing usually does not work.
