The Lanterna tutors will help you succeed at all stages of the IB

Our tutors are passionate about helping IB students around the world because they themselves were once IB students.

The Lanterna Tutors

At Lanterna, you will always be taught by elite IB alumni who did exceptionally well in their IB diploma and have gone on to study at top universities around the world. We receive over 300 applications a year and only around 10% are selected to become Lanterna tutors. Through our rigorous selection process, we ensure that we hire only the most driven and responsible tutors to show you how to succeed in the IB.
We invite everyone who is interested in tutoring with us to complete an application form allowing us to initially assess relevant skills and experience. The top tutor applicants are then invited to interview with us. During this process candidates’ teaching abilities are assessed and we evaluate key qualities needed such as communication, knowledge and passion. Only those who excel in all areas of their teaching are then accepted; we turn many candidates away after this stage, even some who have scored the full 45 points in their IB diploma. Only 30-40 tutors will be accepted each year. We pride ourselves on only accepting those applicants who are truly outstanding on to the Lanterna team.

All new tutors must attend a full day’s training before tutoring for the first time, ensuring that they use all the necessary skills and attributes to make their classes the best they can be. After this, tutors receive continuous support and feedback through our mentoring program and regular evaluation sessions. In this way we guarantee that all our tutors are able and ready to perform at their absolute best from day one.
