Ella K, 44 points Brighton and Sussex Medical School I find it vital to get to know the IB requirements and the mark schemes, so that answers can be tailored to this specific style. My teaching style is very interactive. I avoid monologues, but rather prompt my students with questions. My main aim is to keep students engaged.
Crystal H, 45 points Trinity College Dublin Medical School I explore each student’s weakness within each topic through open-ended conceptual questions, then really drill into them through practice questions until those areas become their strengths.
Sidharth H, 45 points Imperial College London I always start from the basics—from fundamental definitions and principles. And every step of the way, I get the student to think about what comes next, so that we actually build up the concept together.
Lewis M, 45 points London School of Economics I try to keep my teaching fun, energetic and ultimately highly focused on achieving each student’s specific targets. Also, the more sessions I have with a student the more I am able tailor my teaching to them.
Nicholas F, 43 points The University of Manchester It’s important that students work through problems themselves as much as possible. Students are only able to replicate what they learn when having gone through the learning process themselves. I make sure to give the student problems so that they are able to retain what they have learnt and then replicate it themselves.
Faisal A, 45 points The University of Hong Kong As a compliment to school learning, I try to tailor my classes precisely to what the student wants to improve in and prepare resources and lessons accordingly. Outside of that is to keep everything casual and create a comfortable environment for both myself and the student.
Khushi R, 45 points University of Bath I am a very patient tutor, and understand that it can take time to wrap your head around difficult concepts. Hence, I will focus on understanding your style of learning so that I can explain concepts in a way that best works for you and really value questions (no question is stupid!)
Bianca A, 44 points University College London I try to solid build relationships with my students and would classify my teaching in 3 key words: adaptable, passionate, and interactive.
Nicole N, 44 points University of Exeter I focus on creating a good and comfortable relationship with the student and emphasising that no question is a silly question. I put a big emphasis on student participation and a lot of questions building up to exam level so that my students feel fully confident.
Aniket P, 44 points Johns Hopkins University I’ve found that breaking complex ideas down to their fundamentals and encouraging students to use those to assemble problem-solving strategies helps to develop a stronger grasp and an ability to think analytically and apply concepts, skills that supported my own academic journey.
Nicolas K, 44 points Sciences Po Paris I focus on making that link from what the student wants and how to achieve it within the IB system is the most important thing to consider. Ever student needs something different – some need to talk things through, some want a detailed presentation, and it’s important to be flexible.
Sophie R, 44 points University of Warwick You can memorise information with flashcards and enough patience, but conversations with someone more experienced can unlock a level of deeper understanding and real learning that’s impossible to get alone. Tutoring should be that conversation!

our success stories

Lanterna definitely improved my final grade. Additionally, it’s very hard to get good quality study resources but Lanterna provides the best quality resources that led to my success this year.
Alex K student
The tutors are organised at all times and teach in a way I can fully understand the concepts. For instance i got great help for my Maths IA from my tutor, as i was completely lost and didn’t even know where to make a start.
Blanca M IB student
The promptness of Lanterna team in responding to our needs and the quality of the tutor arranged were very impressive. Within only two days after i wrote an email asking for help, they connected my son with an amazing tutor who knew exactly how to help him and was very supportive. I strongly recommend Lanterna.
Esra S IB parent
I’ve had the pleasure of working with my tutor for Physics HL and Math AA HL, and I can confidently say that I’m extremely satisfied with the progress I’ve made under his guidance. We’ve covered a range of topics in both subjects, and I’ve been consistently impressed with my tutor’s ability to explain even the most complex concepts in a way that’s easy for me to understand. Overall, I’m very happy with the tutor selection process at Lanterna and have found their system to be user-friendly and efficient.
