Mrs. Kristin Dunn, a course instructor for BJU Press Distance LearningMrs. Dunn loves children and enjoys teaching them to explore new concepts.

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."


Miss Tara Liston, BA, MAT

Mrs. Tara Liston, a course instructor for BJU Press Distance LearningMiss Liston has experience working with children from primary to high school. “Teaching is a joy. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to impact children’s lives with the hope of encouraging a growing relationship with the Lord.

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.”


Mrs. Tawnja Schaffner, BS, MEd

Mrs. Tawnja Schaffner, a course instructor for BJU Press Distance LearningMrs. Schaffner has previously taught all the elementary grades. "I grew up on the mission field of the Netherlands.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good review Good review of past material. Could have started with more advanced math sections but over all it was right on target for a summer review product. I would certainly purchase this series again. June 17, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by First time user My son thinks this is easy to use and understand. Likes it so far. Again, (this is my second review) the instructions are easy to follow. Work is done in 15mins or less so play time is not really affected. June 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Summer School I have used this for a couple of years and will use it, again. this summer. I have 3 children and I'm buying a 4th book for my grandchild. The two open pages are divided into one day's lesson with 4 parts. The end of the week's lesson gives fun things (like crossword puzzles), to review what they've learned. Since there are short assignments, there is no problem with it being "summer school." We just include it in the morning chores! May 18, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good material, but not much of it. Overall I am pleased with the material, but for the price it's a terribly thin book. Other publishers provide just as good material for the same price with double the pages. Also disappointed that there's not as much Bible integration as other BJU curricula. April 15, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Summer Brain Drain Prevention Enjoy these books immensely to help keep my kids on track over the summer months. Easily portable and not time consuming. Enough daily material to keep them thinking but not too much to distract from summer fun as well. April 3, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by BJU Writing and Grammar Grade 4 We love the English 4 Writing and Grammar for our homeschool Language program. I love that my daughter will be getting a solid education in the English language with this program. I purchased the distance learning program while it was on sale to "test out" the curriculum and now I want to use other subjects as well. If they have the sale again, I will purchase English 5, Heritage Studies, Science and Math for next year. At the $99 + book price per subject, it would be well worth the money. It holds my daughter's interest and teaches far better than I could ever do. We hope the company continues to offer discounted prices from time to time in the future. If they do, they have my business! February 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by I wish I had come to DVDs sooner My son was struggling with certain grammar concepts. I would explain them and think he understood only to get to a review section and realize he had not grasped the concept after all. After 2 weeks on this program (we came in mid-year with a $99 special), Superlative Sam had him straightened out in not 1 but 2 grammar concepts. English is now his favorite subject. Bravo BJU! February 12, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Homeschooling Use Personally I found the videos to appear outdated. My 4th grade daughter loved them. The content is great and provides a strong grammar foundatation. Overall I would defianatley use again. My daughter was stuggling with grammar and thanks to this program is now awsome and confident when it comes to grammar. It does also cover writing very well and some of these lessons are helpful in spelling. February 11, 2013
