Professional Tutoring in the Abbotsford and Fraser Valley Area

For 20 years, Northern Lights Learning Center has provided comprehensive tutoring programs, tailored to the individual needs and learning styles of every student in ON, SK, AB and BC. Using the strengths of the student, we work at their instructional level to approach and overcome weak areas, providing them with the opportunity to succeed immediately and advance in grade level. This in turn promotes effort, confidence, organization, initiative and a willingness to learn; all key aspects of a successful student.
