    Current Employee - Adjunct Instructor in Orem, UT

    I have been working at Utah Valley University part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of agreeable people to work with.
    The leaders of the English Department provide some informal training on how to teach, in the form of four one-hour seminars each semester.
    As long as you are a positive, encouraging teacher, the Eng Dept isn't too critical about how you teach your classes.
    If you have trouble with students who cause problems in class, the Eng Dept is very supportive of teachers and helps them work through problems with troublesome students.

    Cons

    No offices are provided for adjunct teachers, so meeting with students outside the classroom can be a problem.
    Most of my students come to the Intermediate Writing classes I teach with very little mastery of grammar, syntax, or organizational skills, almost as if they have not passed English 1010. It's like having a classroom full of failing students, who don't take good notes and seem not to even think about writing except when they are in the classroom. The students seem interested in only getting a good grade, not in learning to improve their writing skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide tests that students must pass with acceptably good scores before they can sign up for an Intermediate Writing course.
    Provide adjunct teachers with at least a carrel in which to meet students.
