    Pros

    You get to pick your own hours so in that way, working hours are flexible

    Cons

    Even though you get to pick your own hours, most students can only be tutored in the early morning or at night so if you can't work those times, you won't get many hours. Also, management was very unorganized when I worked there. Students are either great or they're not. It just depends on who you get.
