You need to get involved with the online ESL groups and see who is working for the company that you are applying. They might be able to point you to some videos or materials to help you out. It doesn’t hurt to ask.
4# Preparing for your Demo Lesson
The company should send you material for the demo lesson. Look on YouTube to find examples of demo lessons. Don’t take the demo lesson lightly. You really need to be well prepared. I would even go so far to say over prepare for it. This is going to determine your starting pay rate for most companies.

You need to work extra hard for the next 7 month preparing for your classes and tweaking them to fit into your new companies system. At that point, you can start adding more classes to your schedule. I would do this gradually.
