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."

 

Mr. Jamie Swingle, BA, MED

Mr. Jamie Swingle, a course instructor for BJU Press Distance LearningMr. Swingle has 7 years of teaching experience and a genuine love for history. "My desire for my students is to give them a realization that the study of history is essential to gaining a better understanding of God; God often reveals Himself through His dealings with man, which is exactly what history is. It is impossible to study history without seeing the providence of God."

 

Miss Rebekah Pringle, BA, MA

Miss Rebekah Pringle, a course instructor for BJU Press Distance LearningMiss Pringle's interest in literature began at an early age through her mother's almost daily reading aloud of good literature as a part of her family's school day. The past 10 years of focused study and teaching in the disciplines of Creative Writing and English have increased Miss Pringle's delight and enthusiasm in analyzing and evaluating all genres of literature. “Everyone loves a story. A well-crafted story, poem, essay, or drama delights me on several levels, but it's the benefit of gaining an increased understanding and appreciation of God's inspired literature, His Word, that motivates me to apply and grow in my own literary analysis skills and to do my best to instill in my students a similar desire for and delight in literature. It's my prayer that as we enjoy great literary works together we will be inspired to love and pursue God's truth presented in His greatest Book of 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.

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 4.5 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Could be more organized The curriculum as a whole needs to be more streamlined & in sync. I. E. Some quizzes are in the test packet some are in the student lesson guide some are in the video lesson guide. The revision made to grade 6 is an example of what needs to be done to grade 8 August 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by I cannot ask for a better curriculum!!! I am so grateful for the BJU Distance Learning curriculum! Everything is easy to use and my child loves it! The videos are excellent! Well worth the money! October 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by For a strong acedemic program with a biblical worldview choose BJU press As a former teacher and mother of 6 who has evaluated many different curricula, I have been very pleased with BJU press. It is a high quality curriculum taught from a biblical worldview helps me as a parent by providing rubrics for grading subjective materials and answer keys. It makes learning enjoyable and home schooling less tedious. November 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Much Better! The grade 8 curriculum is very well done. My child especially likes the history. As a parent, I appreciate the changes that were made this year making it much easier for me. I love that all that I need is now in one place. Thank you for making the changes! September 18, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good curriculum, but confusing plans I have used BJU for 8 years, and have been pleased with the curriculum as well as the home study program. However, the layout of the English 8 curriculum is extremely confusing. I don't like the way the lesson plans are mixed in with the actual assignment pages. It is also very challenging to figure out what to grade each day and how to assign a grade. October 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pre-Algebra 8 This teacher is very good and engaging. Holds my sons attention and he clearly learns from the material presented. October 9, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Biblically sound, academically rigorous curriculum DVD/ parent guide manual enormous and cumbersome. Material takes many, many hours to complete each day. Doesn't always allow for extracurricular activities. Definitely not for kids with learning differences. August 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pre Algebra 8th grade The only thing I would suggest for this product is: include the teacher manual with the dvd and student book. I am not a fan of having the manual on the disc. I like to have the book with me, so that I can sit down with my son while he is doing his work. We love Mr. Harmon!! September 3, 2013
