Mrs. Sarah Lawson, BS

Mrs. Sarah Lawson, a course instructor for BJU Press Distance LearningMrs. Lawson previously taught kindergarten for four years. "One of my goals in teaching is to help your child feel successful at his present level and to encourage him to improve. Throughout the lessons, we talk about simple yet extremely important concepts, such as ‘God made me special,’ and ‘God gave me the Bible.’ I enjoy talking about these things with the children through the lessons. I wanted to be a teacher from the time I was a little girl, and I’m thankful to the Lord for letting me teach your child through this Distance Learning program."


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. Debra Overly, BS, MS

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, BS

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.”

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product We have been enjoying online course since it is so easy to use and my daughter loves that she can do all of it by herself, she is in 2nd grade. We chose Science online class since we tend to spend more time on other subjects and not enough doing Science. It has been great having this option where my daughter can have fun with it and learn so much. The accompanied books are age appropriate, easy to read and enjoyable for my 7 year-old. March 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great! I love these books!! They don't take the kids long, but keep their brain active and remembering through the summer vacation. Would recommend to everyone!! October 28, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Excellent review of this year's material. The stories were interesting and kept my child interested. The level of difficulty was exactly what I would have wanted in a summer review product. June 17, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by First time user I will say, this book is good so far. My son just started using it and he thinks the lay out is easy to follow. Instructions are also easy to understand and work is done in less that 15 mins sometimes. June 5, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Excellent Math curriculum CDs more work than online My husband & I both have math degrees and our daughter has a creative, playful, "there has to be some fun" to learn personality. This curriculm meets our goal of a very sound number theory, logic, problem sovling curriculum balanced in a fun way with math fact drill. The only negitive is after my son has used BJU Press online, we were used to the daily extra pages being listed for us each day with the lesson... we click and print, easy! However, after ordering the online Math 2 we were disappoint to realize online was not availiable until June. Then we had to send our first order back, then order the CD Math 2 curriculum! It was more costly, too! Next, the CD verses Online programs requires the parent to search with in the PDF files on 2 resource CDs for the extra pages needed each day, unlike the Online that list the day with a link directly to a particular page of pdf and then print. Lastly, after looking through the Schedule of Lessons and Records page, something called "Student Reviews" was listed for a grade each day; however, this didn't come in the Grade 2 Math CD kit! So, yes, it is listed as optional, but is 2 pages of math per day to do in addition to 1 worktext page the student is do by her/his self. So, we placed another order for just the Math 2 Student Reviews again this was another $20 plus shipping! Concluding, we love the product, but would recommend the Math 2 Online over the Math 2 CD program and strongly suggest ordering the Math Reviews with your order! March 10, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by A little outdated... We love the BJU online curriculum! My kids stay interested and engaged. The academics are excellent! However, we do think that there could be improvement in the video quality. The videos are outdated and it is very obvious. With all the advancements in technology, BJU should re-make the video's so they are clearer to see. February 12, 2013
