Mrs. Debra Overly, a course instructor for BJU Press Distance LearningMrs. Overly, a mother of three, has experience teaching several elementary grades. "I want to encourage each child to look forward to learning each day and also to provide sufficient practice and review activities to help alleviate mom’s workload. Most importantly, I want to present Christ in each subject that I teach. Each child should hear the gospel and then see in a very practical way how it can change a sinner."


Mrs. Jennifer Cox, BS

Mrs. Jennifer Cox, a course instructor for BJU Press Distance LearningMrs. Cox, who previously taught third grade and worked for the BJU Press, continues teaching elementary grades for BJU Press Distance Learning. "Being the mother of three children is quite an education in itself. Dealing with my own children gives me insight into the minds and hearts of young children. I want each child who finishes [a] BJU Press Distance Learning grade to come away with a very sound, excellent education. One way I try to do this is by making each lesson clear and interesting so that the student can grasp the objectives and build on previous knowledge. I want to inspire children to love learning and to understand and believe that only the Christian who trusts God and obeys His Word will live a life filled with blessing and reward."

Mrs. Evanna Walker, a course instructor for BJU Press Distance LearningMrs. Walker has eight years’ experience teaching first grade at Bob Jones Elementary School. “My first love is to teach a child to read-primarily so that he can read God’s Word for himself and share it with others. He should be able to appreciate what he reads, draw conclusions, and make value judgments to become a thinker.”


Mrs. Sarah Lawson, BS

Mrs. Sarah Lawson, a course instructor for BJU Press Distance LearningMrs. Lawson has five years' experience teaching in the classroom and over ten years at BJU Distance Learning. "One of my goals in teaching is to help your child feel successful at his present level and to encourage him to improve.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My daughter likes Spelling With my 2nd grader, who finds it hard to spell, but still telling me this is her favorite subject, I'm thinking it's because of the great teacher, Mrs. Walker! My three homeschoolers all tell me she's the best teacher.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hard for my 2nd grader to follow It is rather above my second graders head. I do wish it would be way less details, and simple enough for her to understand and remember. The teacher is a little hard to hear as well. My daughter is dyslexic so perhaps that is part of it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Awesome Year! This is our third year homeschooling with BJU Distance Learning, and we are loving it! My daughter loved her first grade teachers and friends, and she is loving her new ones!! I couldn't be happier with the new "all in one" daily lesson guide that includes every subject all on one page- what a time saver!! Thanks BJU for the time and effort you have put into making homeschool a breeze and a pleasure for our family!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent curriculum for 8 year old child with autism spectrum disorder. The ease of use is wonderful. Everything is carefully planned out and easy to follow. The teacher's on the DVD's help create a positive feeling about learning. I just completed the first six weeks of second grade. I am pleased with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great choice! My 6- year old son and I are enjoying this program very much. DVD content is engaging for a typical 2nd grader and it teaches each concepts very thoroughly and illustrations are excellent. My son retains and understands all he learns. He loves Science

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It meets our needs and exceeded our expecctations! We have a unique situation, triplet 8 year olds and an almost 7 year old. The quality content of this program, coupled with individual like instruction, makes it the perfect fit for our family. The teacher/parent prepared materials are wonderful and lay out what I need to do and have prepared each day for the children. The DVDs (teacher) instruction are interesting, engaging, and keep to exactly what is stated in the lesson objectives and plans. Our BJU Representative gave us excellent suggestions to make the program run even easier and we are thrilled to have made the transition to this after traditionally homeschooling on our own with an eclectic approach for the prior 17 years. We are looking forward to a successful school year with our "mini" (home)school!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Product Ever! I grew up in a private school before heading to university and I knew it was the right environment for my children. When our son was born we knew very early on that he was extremely bright. When he begin begging at 3 to learn to read we decided it was time to look for a curriculum. We started him with BJU in pre-K and hired a retired teacher to help him through it while mommy worked. We were so impressed with the quality of the curriculum that we decided that we would continue using BJU. As he has progressed and is now in 2nd grade I can't believe how much he is learning and retaining. BJU just keeps exceeding my expectations and we couldn't be happier.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Grade 2 DVD with books This is a sold Biblical program. What I like: Bible is great, Science is very good and keeps the students attention, Math and English are very well done and the students can work relatively independently. Reading is good, involved and we do not do all work assigned, but a very good reading program. What I do not like: History- no study guides only the notebook, this is due to this being the older edition. Handwriting, the DVD is really pointless. I have my students only do the work text but I really like they are learning cursive. Spelling is the older edition, really would like the DVD updated to meet the latest spelling text. Overall this is a great program. The Biblical integration is amazing. I just hope they update the DVDs with the work texts b/c I have another 2nd grader coming up soon.
