Be a STAR and join Peabody’s tutoring program!

Have you always dreamed of being a star? Peabody’s STAR tutoring program will give you just the opportunity you’ve been waiting for!
Super Tutors Achieving Results (STARs) work with Peabody’s younger students (mostly 2nd graders) who are struggling readers to put them on a path to success. We’re looking for Peabody parents and other community members who are willing to commit to these great kids as they work hard to improve their reading skills. Volunteers do not need any special teaching experience — you’ll mostly just be providing extra one-on-one reading practice with your student.

Tutoring Blocks (choose a one-hour shift): 

Monday, Tuesday and Thursday 

8:35 am – 1:00 pm & 

2:00 pm – 5:00 pm

We ask each volunteer to commit to an hour a week or to form a tutoring team and share a one-hour weekly time slot with friends. Training will be done in the evening at Peabody during September, times to be announced. All new volunteers must be fingerprinted at the main Memphis City Schools offices.
