Usually the distributions aimed at beginners have their own partitioner in the installation routine, so there is no need for extra tools.
If you still want to use a different partitioner use the one you are familiar with, ir doesn't matter. The only partitioner I can not recommend is cfdisk, since it still misaligns partitions on SSDs and Advanced Format HDDs by default.
