    back to back

    Teacher, are these sentence OK? Did I use the word "back-to-back" correctly?

    Mary, a freelance reporter, finds her job very challenging but tough especially when she has to do back-to-back assignments for one to two months without a break. It would be ideal if she could get assignments with several days break in between as that would give her some time to get her energy back.

    If you put a commas after "challenging", "tough" and "between", it would be OK.
