    I have been working at University of Tulsa part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You choose which hours you are available and how many you work (usually at least 5 but can do less), it’s really easy as long as you know the material and are willing to work with student athletes

    Cons

    Sometimes the athletes can be difficult or lazy, or just don’t show up (this is also kind of a pro bc they pay you to just chill for 15 min and leave), only pays $10 an hour
