With our expe­ri­ence in real estate edu­ca­tion, we under­stand that inter­ac­tion between instruc­tor and learner is one of the most impor­tant fea­tures of an effec­tive learn­ing pro­gram. With this in mind, all of Approved Real Estate Acad­emy pre-license stu­dents are assigned a “per­sonal instruc­tor” to answer course-related ques­tions.

We have learned that our stu­dents are more sat­is­fied with their learn­ing expe­ri­ence and ulti­mately more suc­cess­ful on the state licens­ing exam­i­na­tion if they are in fre­quent con­tact with their per­sonal instruc­tor.
