How we do what we do

We use our proprietary methodology to empower students to unlock their full potential. Our approach involves matching IB grads with IB students. Our tutors excelled in the IB program and have achieved academic success as a result. They know the ins and outs of the IB program and are trained on how to share their knowledge and experience with IB students who need extra support achieving the grades that will make them stand out to universities and employers.

We know students

Lanterna Education has assisted students in the IB program for nearly 20 years. We have all the resources, tools and knowledge to support IB learners and empower them to unlock their potential.

We understand that every student has different goals, competencies and academic backgrounds. Whether they have had continuous support from teachers, need an extra edge to boost their exam scores, require an outside perspective to nail a tough assignment, or require assistance building the foundation for improved learning, the Lanterna team is here to help. We’ll match you with a tutor who suits you and your needs.

We know tutoring

Our tutoring services are flexible and tailored to individual needs. Our extensive network of 300+ exceptional tutors is the perfect source to find a successful match for every student who turns to us for help.

We receive hundreds of tutor applications every year and have a rigorous selection process in place. Candidates must demonstrate not only their expertise, but their explanatory and interpersonal skills as well. Our tutors are regularly evaluated and their performance is analysed to ensure they are providing the best support possible. Students complete feedback surveys so we can check satisfaction rates and make improvements where and when possible.
