    I worked at National University of Singapore part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good source of income while studying, and teaching helps to solidify your skills. You get a lot of freedom in your work, and it feels good to help the next batch of students learn. The hourly rate is decent and the hours are generally manageable. Fellow tutors that I've worked with were all friendly and willing to lend a hand.

    Cons

    Balancing school and work can get difficult towards the end of semester, and it's a commitment so you cannot give up halfway.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tutors don't have staff printing privileges, but other than that everything's good!
