      Pros

      It is good to work with professors and enhances teaching and public speaking skills. Schedule is flexible and allows for other activities.

      Cons

      Workload varies a lot and can be hard to do so much grading at times. Position is definitely underpaid for the amount of work.

      Cons

      You need to be available to students most of the time even when you are not working. During finals it gets pretty busy.
