    Pros

    The students are great! Working with them and being able to help them get the education for a career is very satisfying.

    Cons

    2014 - Horrible work conditions for staff and faculty. Very abusive... very 'cliquey'. If you are friends with the bullies (administration), all goes well. If not, then your life is hellacious. It pains me when I have to keep documentation of abuse and record every interaction with administration instead of focusing on my job of helping the students. Hiring committees are stacked toward 'yes men' candidates. Any request for help is ignored by administration. I can sum it all up by this: In the grocery store and cashier and I were chatting. Told them I worked at Virginia Western... her response -- that used to be a great place, but everyone in high school knows how bad it is now.

    Pros

    Great work environment: the more experienced tutors are good about helping the new hires; Good work-school balance: you're in control of the amount of work you do (how many students you decide to tutor), allowing you to balance work and school; Memory jog: tutoring others in courses you have recently completed helps keep the information fresh in your mind as you continue your studies; Reasonable pay

    Cons

    Meeting the needs of the people you tutor can be challenging at times, requiring you to be flexible and creative

    Advice to Management

    Your friendliness and helpfulness goes a long way. Keep up the good work.
