Memphis Model in the classroom

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.

Life is a competitive sport.

 I am a native Memphian with a unique passion for Economics. I am a proud son of immigrant parents. Currently, I am pursuing a PhD in Economics at the University of Memphis specializing in Labor Economic, Education Economics, and Econometric. I have the honor to serve Peer Power as a Doctoral Fellow, where I study education data and school environments to better help the kids we serve. My topics of research (both within and without of Peer Power) include: Labor policies within educational settings, Teacher incentive policies and retention rates, Human capital measures, and Public funding allocation efficiency. Outside of school and work I love to cook and cheer on our Memphis Grizzles.
