By means of the Teaching Light


Explanation:

not "The Light will be Your Teacher", because the Latin equivalent of this would be "Lux Magistra" (nominative case); Luce Magistra is in the ablative case, which stands for "by means of, through, by way of..."

with the help of light


Explanation:
there is a sentence by Vergilius "arte magistra" which is usually translated "with the help of art" (having art as a teacher); the structure of your sentence is the same, substituting "arte" with "luce" (both in the ablative); this is way I decided to translate: with the help of light (having light as a teacher)
