Sam Barnes

Center Director

I created Star Tutoring Centers to address a fundamental need in the Dallas market for effective tutoring focused on the holistic student learning experience. We don't just teach a student math or literacy and call it a day. We strive to build effective, repeatable skills that enable success and independence both in and outside of our tutoring centers.

I have spent my career in education innovation.  My professional experience includes working with big educational publishers and small, Texas-focused firms. I have collaborated with content developers to launch innovative credit recovery courses, Career and Technical Education (CTE) certification programs for high schools, and test prep materials - both print and online. Over the last decade, projects I have led have impacted hundreds of thousands of students.

You have probably heard the phrase: Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day. Teach a person to fish and you feed them for a lifetime. While other tutors hand out fish, at Star Tutoring Centers, I like to think we are teaching our students how to fish. Learn more about why our approach is better!
