    Pros

    Great people to work with! Everything is online, and it is set up well. If you like teaching and test prep material, you will really like it.

    Cons

    Depending on how far you are willing to travel, teaching assignments can be scarce. May not be an issue depending on what you are looking for. You can become involved with other projects and work at home sometimes.

    I have been working at Kaplan part-time

    Cons

    -Can be a hassle for very involved students

    Idea of having student ambassadors is to be a more mobile grassroots face. That works best if the entire organization is more mobile and responsive. Some official suggestions are just downright silly.
