    Pros

    Helping students with Multivariable Calculus, a subject that I personally enjoy, and a lot of free time.

    Cons

    Nothing I can say really. Probably change shifts to a more convenient time, but that's the only detail.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, it's great.
