Bonnie Poznekoff

Centre Director

Bonnie has been Centre Director of our Abbotsford location since it first opened its doors in 1997. Parents tell us that her care and concern for their children is apparent, and that she is an excellent cheerleader for students who need that extra boost. “I’m committed to doing whatever it takes for a student to be successful,” explains Bonnie, a graduate of Simon Fraser University. She adds, “It’s important for students to be prepared for this ever-changing world. I gain tremendous satisfaction from seeing kids who were struggling in school transform into competent students who exude newfound confidence.”

As Assistant Director, Pam inspires new students and helps to increase their skills and confidence. She first joined Sylvan in 1996 as a math tutor. She spent the next few years growing in her role as a tutor, eventually teaching every Sylvan program, from Beginning Reading to SAT Preparation.
