Helen Jones has been a REALTOR® since 1974. In 1992, she started tutoring UBC’s Pre-Licensing course.
Helen has developed learning aids for students enrolled in the following UBC courses:
- Real Estate Trading Services
- Property Management
- Strata Property Management
- Real Estate Brokers
- Mortgage Brokers
- Selected courses from the Urban Land Economics Diploma Course
The tutorials are presented thoroughly at the pace that the student chooses; each student who completes all the supplementary questions and practice exams that Helen provides is well prepared for the final exam.
One of the main benefits of Helen’s tutorials is her use of anecdotal information about working in the field that helps the student see more relevance in the course material. Audio-visual aids help reinforce the course information. The supportive environment of her classroom gives each student the confidence to succeed on examination day.
Helen is committed to education and believes that knowledge provides a firm foundation for a successful business person.
When I decided to go into the real estate industry, I heard from many realtors that the course was very difficult and that most people failed the first time. I then started to ask about tutors, and all four realtors I asked suggested Helen Jones. I wanted to have my license by February, so there was no option to fail. Helen’s encouragement, support, and tutoring style, along with her many tools made me feel very confident going into my exam. I passed and I am now a Realtor.
