The instructor pilot reported that the aircraft was conducting dual training circuits with a student pilot. The student was having problems judging the landing flare and touch-down. On the third circuit the aircraft ballooned in the flare. A wind gust lifted the right wing causing the aircraft to diverge left of the runway. The left wing tip then struck the runway and the aircraft came to a stop.
