If you can play an F major chord, you can play every major chord, because the shape of the chord doesn't change, you just have to move it one fret up. The minor chord differs from the major chord in just one single note, so you also should be able to play all minor chords.
And what the heck do you mean by "a bunch of power chords"? A power chord is a power chord is a power chord. It's always the same shape, everywhere on the guitar...

There are two types of power chords.
1.) an open string and the second fret on the next higher string
A|-2-| D|-2-|
E |-0-| A|-0-|
E5 A5
2.) power chords without an open string, like the G5 or the F#5 :
A|-5-| A|-4-|
E|-3-| E |-2-|

There absolutely no difference in playing between an F5 or an B5, except you have to adjust that shape/pattern on another fret. There's always the root note and the fifth on the next higher string. So if you want F5, you play the root, which is first fret on the E-string and the fifth, which is the third fret on the A-string. Or C5: 8th fret on E, 10th fret on A or 3rd on A and 5th on D.
You only have one shape and just move that along the fretboard.
The whole system is so easy, I can't believe your "teacher" didn't told you that...
