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.

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Allows you to Jump right into homeschooling I am brand new to home schooling. So when we decided to homeschool our son, I really had no idea which curriculum to choose. Thankfully, a dear sister in the church recommended BJU as she used it to homeschool her 2 daughters through high school. The sign up was easy and we were quickly on our way to the start of a new school year. The only things Some improvements I would prefer: - the videos could be updated to reflect the use of online only content. The videos still reference the teachers resource dvd which is unnecessary for the online because all of the dvd content is there online in the parent's login and however, the online content is not the easiest to weed through and find actually what they are talking about. Some things have pdf right into the daily lesson so that makes it easier. - there should be a separate online parent's checklist for grading work. The students list of work is beautifully organized and the student checks off what they have accomplished. However, the parent would have a much easier time if there was a separate 'to do' that matched the parent's responsibility list in the Schedule of Lessons. I am often searching through the work seeing what I need to grade next & where is the answer key - there should also be a weekly review #overview# for the parents so that we can quickly see if the child will need any printouts for the week or labs; Basically, if you are very involved in their daily curriculum, you should be able to follow along closely and know what they are doing; however, if you are just overseeing, helping with questions here and there, grading homework, you can easily fall behind and figuring out what is up grading and where it is can be time consuming - they reference an online grade book which is coming could not come soon enough! Only the online test are graded. Even though the quizzes are online, you still have to enter the grades onto a manual record of grades sheet. The clear benefits are: - tests & quizzes are online. No need to print out or facilitate them, - there are daily videos in each lesson, sometimes more than one & my son seems to enjoy the teachers, - the books are very nice; some classes have a book and a workbook. - customer service has been great. They are always pretty much immediately available to walk you through any question. There was a page in the teacher's manual which did not have the answer to 3 questions. I was able to get someone immediately who found the issue and was able to get the answers quickly for those. I am really happy with the customer service. They are very nice people who are helpful which has made my life easier. -it's all a biblically sound curriculum Overall, it's a great program with great structure which I believe is constantly being improved. I would recommend this to others seeking homeschooling. I do not have any comparison to make only to say that it is working for us and we are grateful for being led to it. September 23, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Excellent academic structure with passionate teachers! We have been using BJU Distance Learning for 2 years. My oldest is in 10th grade and she started with it last year. After some trial and error we figured out how to follow the video calendar for example, where it states Day 5 with video 01-01. We did not realize that she needed to do all videos associated with Day 5. I thought she was to do a video a day. We were impressed with the teaching passion and knowledge of Mrs. Vick, Mr. Harmon, Miss Pringle, Mr. Cancino and Mr. Mendoza. Our only concern is that there are no African-Americans who are teachers on the programs we have viewed. Perhaps for Black families, this could help to ease some of the anxiety that new students feel as they could have a role model who looks like them. My other daughter in 7th grade likes the program a great deal! She also feels there is a need for more diversity. There could also be a place in the video to pause the program where the student could stretch his/her legs. Both girls also feel that the chat rooms should be more academic and less religious. They are hoping the format could encourage students to study together and form groups related to their classes. As a parent and former college professor at a secular college, I appreciate the ways in which the Bible is included in the lessons. It is not "preachy", but used in a common sense manner to make young people feel empowered about their walk with Christ. I TRULY LOVE Mrs. Vick, Mr. Harmon, Miss Pringle, Mr. Cancino, and Mrs. Bullock. They exemplify a love, passion and excitement for their field that inspires me not only as a former teacher, but as a parent who is learning along with my kids. October 9, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by We loved this. We will be using this again for sure. You won't be disappointed. August 21, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by I'm Glad We Are Using This! So far, we have used the BJU Grade 7 Distance Learning for English, History, and Science. We will also soon use the Literature and French. It has worked well for us. It especially fits my son very well. This program allows him to be independent, and he only occasionally asks me for help with his work. He has really liked the independence and seems to enjoy this way of learning. For the most part, the overall main ideas of the different concepts taught seem to stick with him quite well. I am really impressed with the quality of the teaching. I occasionally tweak the program to best fit our needs, but I would use it again and recommend it to others. For a "traditional" approach to homeschooling, I think this is a good program. Something I would LOVE to see is an update in the videos, but I realize that this would be a big undertaking. They are fairly modern feeling, but an even more updated video curriculum would be better. February 11, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great opportunities to grow in wisdom, knowledge and intimacy with God. Different than other curriculums we had used, but good once we got the hang of it. Thankful for the opportunity to grow in biblical knowledge, academic excellence and intimacy with Christ. February 11, 2013
