    I worked at University of Central Florida part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The job provides training and mentoring sessions for new tutors so that they can become acclimated to the environment that they will be working in.

    The hours are very flexible to work with student schedules.

    Cons

    The Engineering tutors are separated from the regular SARC tutors. The lab in which tutoring sessions are conducted for Engineering students is much more rudimentary than the main lab.

    Advice to Management

    Expand the tutoring positions to more classes and acquire larger rooms for providing sessions.
