Students

Peer Power works with the University of Memphis to make Success Coaches available within the classroom at our partner Shelby County Schools. Students do not have to apply or pay to be part of the program. They receive math, science and language arts assistance in a smaller, more focused student-to-instructor setting that provides more specific and differentiated coaching.

Peer Power also conducts ACT Prep University, which served 1196 students from 53 different Shelby County Schools in 2018. The goal of this program is to get test scores to a 22, the minimum for Shelby County students to be eligible for Tennessee state-funded scholarships.

Life is a competitive sport.

As a proud Peer Power tutor and mentor for the past six years, I have been able to assist high school students during their times of need.  My desire is for my scholars to apply the positive things I have taught them as they take the necessary steps to fulfill their dreams.  Most importantly, I hope my scholars will not lose sight of how far they can go in life.  Over the years, I have seen several students who have struggled in life get through their difficult situations because of the love and support Peer Power has offered them.  Through the Peer Power program, I have had the opportunity to build relationships that will last a lifetime and create wonderful memories with my scholars.  It is an honor to say that I am a member of the Peer Power family.  My experience with Peer Power has helped mold me into the well-rounded individual I am today.
