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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from History made exciting! The online videos have made history exciting again! There is a wealth of knowledge that is shared! We love that the outline is on the video to make taking notes easier. Great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Literature Miss Pringle is an articulate intructor who brings the subject matter to life. Taught from a Christian worldview, this course has imparted discernment and is comprehensive in teaching literary analysis, not to mention very well organized. While rigorous, it can be adapted to student's particular needs. I would highly recommend this course to any student!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from World History I have been homeschooling for the last 15 years and my oldest two children have successfully navigated on to college level work. I have had opportunities to speak at homeschool conventions all across the nation. I teach seminars to beginning homeschoolers as well as seminars on traditional college alternatives. I am an active participant in two large homeschool co-ops, I am a member of a 600 plus-member families state homeschool association, and I have started a homeschool group within my local church. I have never really recommended the BJU curriculum for most of the homeschool families I work with because much of the BJU press material is designed to maximize the traditional classroom learning experience rather than take advantage of the benefits of a home learning environment. It is great for those who want the traditional approach to learning, but has limits for those who choose to use other learning approaches (such as classical, Charlotte Mason, Unit Studies etc.) However, after viewing the new World History distance learning course, I am ecstatic. For the first time, I feel like the press finally "gets" the homeschool environment. The quality of the video is top-notch. I've not seen anything better from any publisher including the secular publishers that are producing cutting edge modern technology for the homeschool. I have personally worked with various publishers and know the homeschool publishing world quite well. This is the best I've seen. It is engaging, direct, fast-paced and full of digestable information. It is NOTHING like the traditional teacher standing in front of a video camera and delivering a lecture. Instead, it has pop up notes, pictures, graphs and easy to follow instruction. Mr. Murphy is engaging and this is totally aimed at the generation of kids who have grown up with games, apps, and video in front of their faces since birth. The lessons are taught in such a way that parents using a classical approach can utilize the information and springboard to their logic or rhetoric stages. Parents using Charlotte Mason's methods can fill their bookshelves with the real and living books that compliment the lessons, and those using other methods can easily adapt the video to garner the best learning environment for their individual homeschool philosophies. If this is the NEW BJU curriculum, then I can wholeheartedly endorse it. My only disappointment is that all of the other demos I watched are still the OLD style and method. I would also love to see them offer these options for parents to purchase and use with all of their children (similar to say the Teaching Textbooks math curriculum). I rated the value at good, because I'm not sure they offer this option. If they did, the value would be excellent. Add those two elements, and I'm sold. And furthermore, I would use my influence to get the word out to other homeschool families to take a look at BJU again. Whoever the genius is behind this new approach, my hats are off to you!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great curriculum and easy to follow My 10th-grade son has no problems following the course and figuring out what the lessons for the day are. The videos are very informative and helpful. I feel that the instruction of the videos is in depth enough for the student to comprehend. What I like about 10th-grade history is that the video lessons are updated. I hope that soon all grade levels will soon follow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The curriculum requires a lot, but it also gives a lot. This is my first year using BJU Press Online. We have both the 8th and 10th grade curricula. It has taken me a while of working with the "system" to become proficient and utilize the benefits offered through the program. Each class covers a great deal of information in a day and some classes takes several days to complete thoroughly. On the other hand, there is great flexibility and a good resources which allow us to tailor to our needs and still gain a quality education. As the overseer, I needed to have good support and organization to be assured that I was offering the best information to each class, as well as being confident I was tracking the work well. This curriculum has provided both of these needs and I am confident that my children will be prepared for college and beyond. My husband has commented that because of the organization, he can step in to help and be confident he is doing the right thing. May I also note, that the teachers are careful to integrate a love of Christ and the a love for students into their classes which has been unique and treasured. I am pleased when a class opens with prayer or the students are challenged to live godly whether it is French class or Science or Bible. It is a pleasure using this curriculum.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Honestly- I am very frustrated with this online course . As a busy mom, who has time to read 400 pages of instruction for each course we teach? Your use manual is not user friendly at all. And the website design is amateur and difficult to maneuver through. I often have to go back to the home just to get a little more info on what we are looking at. I have learned via trial and error most of what I need to know to make this work, along with a phone call which was, by the way, VERY helpful. Strengths: comprehensiveness, text, most lectures, The teacher is good but weighs way too much on teaching biblical principles, which we have covered over and over for our high school student. Also- the time involved in using (grading, testing, checking tests, editing out unnecessary work, etc...) this course for my student is immense! There is way too much lecture. Even though I have used BJU for 18 years for some subjects unless it is simplified, I will think twice before using a BJU online course again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It might be just me but the DLO isn't user friendly After using SOS's program for the last three years we switched my son to DLO. The user interface is not as friendly and easy to navigate as SOS. My son and I have had a hard figuring out where everything is, what all is expected each day and how best to go about making sure it all gets done. We are on day 5 and still don't have a good rhythm going. I have printed out the lesson plans for each subject so we not only have a hard copy in front of us but he can then review online what is supposed to be done. I really think the user interface for the DLO needs to be updated with a more user friendly set up. I also don't like how the math work is set up. He does the odd problems and is supposed to check his work and then I check the even. It would be better if there was a practice set up that he could do and then the regular lesson for me to grade instead of having to do every other problem at a time. Oh- And the lessons don't even completely conclude the chapters. Some problems are left unrequired. I do like the content and think the material is very good. I love that the lessons are all set up for us and that there are lecture videos. But, I think a few tweaks need to be made in order to get this program to as high of a quality as the material is.
