Mr. Daryl Kopp, BA

Mr. Daryl Kopp, a course instructor for BJU Press Distance LearningMr. Kopp grew up in an unsaved family and trusted Christ at 16 years of age, putting the much-needed perspective in his life that had been so miserably absent. Since then, he has been devoted to the Word of God. Reading, studying, teaching, and preaching God’s Word have been a passion, whether teaching fifth-grade Sunday school classes, preaching at youth camps, starting churches in Kenya and Ireland, or teaching Bible in college. "The fruit of all Bible study is to know Christ more intimately, love and adore Him more completely, walk with Him more faithfully, and live for Him more passionately. My goal is to help your student know the facts and stories of the Bible in such a way that Christ is the obvious focal point. I pray that my students will see Christ and be excited about a life of commitment to Him, joyfully exemplifying the heart of Christ when He said, ‘Not my will, but thine, be done.’"


Mrs. Sherri Vick, BS

Mrs. Sherri Vick, a course instructor for BJU Press Distance LearningSherri Vick previously taught various elementary and junior high grades. "I like to look at the picture as a whole—to relate one subject to another so that the child can see how God’s plan fits together. I want the child to want to learn, so the lessons have to be fun. Hands-on is the best way, so I don’t want the student to just watch, but participate too! One of my goals is that, after watching the lessons, your child will continue in the things he has learned and develop lifelong learning skills that he can use both now and in the future."


Mrs. Cynthia Bullock, BS

Mrs. Cynthia Bullock, a course instructor for BJU Press Distance LearningAfter graduating from Bob Jones University in 1987, Cynthia Bullock went on to teach history in Virginia, Michigan, Florida, and North Carolina. It was in Michigan that she met her husband, who was the math teacher in the Christian school where they served together for 17 years. They have four children, three girls and a boy. She took ten years off to stay home with them since three of the four are profoundly deaf. When they mainstreamed into a normal classroom, she returned to the classroom. The Lord led her here to BJU Press Distance Learning in 2011. “I'm so excited about having your child as my student. Thank you for giving me this opportunity to serve you by coming along side and lightening your load.”


Mr. Timothy Snow, BA, MS

Mr. Timothy Snow, a course instructor for BJU Press Distance LearningMr. Snow grew up in a pastor’s home that encouraged service for Christ and saw the need for a solid, Christian education. His parents often sacrificed to see that each of their children was in a Christian school or that they were homeschooled with Christian curriculum. After earning a Bachelor’s degree in history and a Master’s degree in secondary education, he began teaching in Christian schools. In the past twenty years he has served as a Christian school teacher and principal, and God has allowed him to instruct students in history, grammar, literature, and Bible. Mr. Snow also enjoys reading and he is always in search of new books or stories to read. In Explorations in Literature, Mr. Snow desires to pass along his passion for a solid Christian education as well as his love of reading and understanding literature.


Mr. Bill Harmon, BS

Mr. Bill Harmon, a course instructor for BJU Press Distance LearningBill Harmon has loved science for as long as he can remember. After completing his B.S. in Chemistry, he returned to Florida where he gained experience teaching a variety of subjects: science, math, Latin, and computer courses. Now he works as a chemist in the Safety Services Office at BJU, teaches Distance Learning Physics and Algebra, and teaches Chemistry at Bob Jones Academy. He is currently pursuing an M.Ed. in Secondary Education. He and his wife Mary Ann have two children, Brian and Janette. His favorite Bible verse is II Timothy 3:14.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 21 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Excellent teacher / program moves too quickly We've used the BJU Press materials for 5 years, but this was our first attempt to move into a junior high math course. Mr. Harmon is a PHENOMENAL teacher! He explains the material well and is a very engaging teacher. The textbooks and printed materials are laid out nicely for both the student and the teacher. We ended up dropping this course and returning to our previous curriculum, though, entirely due to the material being covered too quickly for adequate retention before moving on to new concepts. November 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Clear content, good pace, engaging and lively teacher. Last year, my daughter did not like math. I was concerned that we might have a struggle with it again this year, but we were pleasantly surprised with this class. The teacher is cheerful, lively, and clear. So far my daughter is enjoying the class and scoring 90+ on the quizzes and exams. We recommend! October 25, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very good coverage of material We have finished two chapters so far. Even thought this is a mastery course, we are find many new concepts that need to be learned. There are more problems than in the other BJU grades but that is also helpful for mastery if necessary. I can see how this course is preparing my student for higher level math. The teacher is very entertaining. He helps to keep the lesson "light" with his jokes and silliness. That helps in math, in my opinion. A very thorough course for anyone who wants to insure their student is prepared for upper level math and SAT and ACT tests. October 8, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Excellent Product...needs some revisions I would like to be able to opt-out of items easier than they currently are, but have found out how we can do this. I love that all the subject integrate biblical lessons. September 19, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Mr. Harmon is the best!!!! I love the fact that if my daughter is having issues we can watch the videos and help her with the understanding. I must say, I have not see a lot of this and I made it through Geometry in High School. He is upbeat and entertaining. Does an excellent job and using different voices and tones. You can feel his excitement of the opportunity to teach math to our kids. This program has been a life saver!!! March 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for younger than 7th grade; needs 3rd Edition books My kids and I have enjoyed the online science courses by Mrs. VIck. We have found them all to be good for an age younger than what it is labeled, so my 4th and 6th grader are doing fine with the Life Science material. Please note that this version of the online Life Science requires THIRD EDITION books, NOT the 4th Edition books that are currently being sold separately. We found this out the hard way. February 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Quality and Bible Integration The quality of the instruction, student text, and workbooks is excellent. The Bible is integrated into every subject. February 7, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Science course for 7th grade! My daughter switched to the DLO Life Science class after trying a different science curriculum for a few weeks. She likes the Life Science class with Mrs. Vick so much better because she really enjoys the subject and also does well with the online classes (she is a strong visual learner). It is a lot of work (she spends 1 to 1.5 hours per day), but she is enjoying it and learning a lot. Mrs. Vick is a wonderful teacher. I highly recommend this class especially for students with a strong interest in life sciences/biology. My daughter will be very well prepared for high school biology after taking this class.
