    Solid work at a good company

    Pros

    The support system was fantastic, with numerous resources, email group support, and live chat at the ready for any tricky questions. The work was engaging, with a broad variety of types of writing to review. Because the guideline is three corrections of larger-scale topics (like paragraph organization) and three corrections of smaller-scale topics (like comma placement), it's less overwhelming than having to do, say, a full edit of the writing in question. It's also a set-your-own-hours job, making it flexible and easy to work from home.

    Cons

    The way it was set up, the next essay/assignment in the queue was sent directly to you once you indicated you were ready to work. This means you have no control over what type of writing you'll be working on - it could be a technical piece, it could be a high-school essay, it could be a rough outline, it could be a college paper, and any other number of things. While this is absolutely fair, it's hard to mentally prepare ahead of time for what you'll be working on. It can also be difficult work at times - papers with errors every other sentence or terrible organization, etc - and it can be a challenge to identify the top three errors to focus the tutoring on.
