EOP Tutor



The Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) is a New York State college access
and academic support program available to students whose educational and
economic circumstances prevented them from demonstrating their potential. EOP
provides a broad range of services, including tutoring, skill development
workshops, leadership opportunities, mentoring, counseling, advisement, pre-
freshman summer experience, and modest financial support. Established in 1967,
the Educational Opportunity Program is one of the most successful endeavors of
its kind.

Under the supervision of the EOP Director, the EOP Tutor is responsible for
helping students improve their academic performance. Tutors help students
understand key concepts in their coursework during individual and/or group
tutoring sessions. An important role of the tutor is to help the student attain self-
confidence by providing positive feedback, encouragement, and helpful tools to
attain success in the course. Tutors do not provide answers, they guide the
student towards independence and how they can attain the answer themselves.

These are part-time positions. This position requires flexible scheduling including
evenings. Tutors are required to be available in person and online. Their working
hours will depend on the number of students requiring tutoring in their subject
area(s). There is no guarantee of continued employment from semester to
semester. EOP Tutors can only tutor EOP students during their assigned EOP
tutoring hours.
