When I was getting ready to pass my interview and demo class, I watched as many YouTube videos as I could. All those videos revolved around the same theme: how to pass the demo and get the job. Another common theme among the videos was using props in the ESL classroom. All the videos recommended having a plenty of props and using them as much as possible during the demo. In addition, before I even watched any videos, my recruiter highly encouraged me to get props for my classroom. They said it would increase my chances of getting hired and achieving a higher base pay.
