So what do you think is a reasonably decent hourly payrate for a part-time person at a writing center? Say the person is a "professional" (not a student at the college-- one of the part-time writing-course instructors, let's say).

Assume a city with a reasonable, somewhat low cost of living.

I think it would depend on the city, but in my university in Texas, it was 18/hour for instructors. Compare to 12/hour for undergrads.

The writing center I used to work at in Georgia is only staffed by undergrads and starts at $7.50/hr and moves on up to $10 at the cap. Now, that might seem low, but cost of living is relatively low here, and the state minimum wage is still only $5.15 here. Hope this helps.

I'd say about $15 an hour.
