Pros

Flexibility in hours, which is perfect as you can squeeze work in between classes or before/after (your preference really). Pretty straightforward job if your able to communicate your knowledge of the subject well and have patience.

Cons

Depending on when you worked (I worked evenings) it would be empty at the campus resource center. Sometimes students who were just plain lazy would show up (how did you graduate high school?!) and expect you to basically write their papers for them.

Advice to Management

Implement more training sessions for the tutors, offer a certification that is recognized statewide after taking the tutor training class would be great.
