    I have been working at Johns Hopkins University part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The work environment is positive with a lot of support. The writing courses I teach are set up, with assignments and workshops. I teach gifted and talented students from 6th to 11th grade. They are usually very smart and polite. I love the students!

    Cons

    An Instructor isn't allowed to work more than 27 hours/week. The worst thing is that I never know how much work I will get. For instance, I had 29 students in the summer and this fall I am down to eight students. Now, I must look for another part-time job.
