In this course, I teach you the most effective, step-by-step approach to writing IB English analysis at an IB 7 standard. Analysis is the most important part of success in IB English, and yet so many students do not have a true understanding of what it means and how to do it.

What will I learn?

The Analysis Bootcamp gives you the 'Swiss army knife' of analytical skills. All the lessons I teach you in this course will benefit all areas of your IB English assessment, because analysis is required in every piece of IB English assessment.

The analytical skills are taught in the specific context of IB English Paper 1. Through years of in-person tutoring, I've found that Paper 1 is the best way to guide students through the steps of literary analysis.

Will I have time for this course on top of IB?

Put in one hour per week to read through the guide, watch the video tutorials and complete the exercises. Your IB English grade will improve---and that's a guarantee. If you're cramming for your IB exam, then you can power through the material in a week.

I'm so confident in the Analysis Bootcamp that you'll get a full refund if you don't feel a significant improvement. No questions asked! (Pssss. We have a 99.65% student satisfaction rate.)

What do I need to know to do the course?

This course does not assume any existing knowledge. We start from the basic 101 and go all the way to the most advanced analytical skills that will earn you a 7 in IB English.

Who is this course aimed at?

The Analysis Bootcamp is aimed at IB English Literature students. With that said, the majority of my students are IB Language and Literature students...and they've all benefited from the course immensely (see the reviews below).

Written guides for IB Language and Literature have also been added to the course so that Lang Lit students can also benefit from the power of LitLearn resources!

I went from a 16/17 out of 20 in the Paper 1s to straight 20s on the last few essays I handed in. My teacher couldn't get over the huge difference between my essays and the others in my group - all thanks to you! This really has been the best course I've paid for; it was like having a personal tutor.

Kris Chari

I can’t tell you how much I value your course, and I haven’t found anything even remotely this helpful, in spite of your course not being a Lang and Lit course. I particularly love the way you break down what seems to be such a daunting task in a structured, methodical way.

Varun Shetty

The course methodically distills what constitutes good analysis. It was very useful for understanding the proper tenets of analysis, which are not commonly taught in other online IB English courses.

This is, by far, the best investment in my English education that I've ever made 😀

Who is behind this course?

I'm Jackson Huang, the creator of this course.

I graduated with an IB 45 in 2014 and scored a high 7 in IB English, including a 20/20 for Paper 1.

Since graduating from the IB, I've tutored more than 25 SL and HL students in Australia taking IB Literature and Language & Literature. But I wasn't satisfied, because I wanted to help more students all over the world.

After releasing my course in 2016, I've been able to share my expertise with IB students all around the world. It's an awesome feeling to know that I'm helping students in places like:

• Australia (Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sydney, Melbourne)
• United Kingdom (England)
• Singapore
• Canada (British Columbia, Ontario)
• Hong Kong
• New Zealand (Auckland)
• United Arab Emirates
• Korea
• Caribbean

2016 was the year that marked 5 years of experience with IB English: three years as a consistent 7 student in IB DP and Pre-IB, and two years teaching literary analysis 7 days a week. It was in 2016 that I felt truly confident in delivering premium content that will undoubtedly help you improve your grade in IB English.

I'm passionate about literature, and I hope I can share my extensive IB experience and knowledge with you.

Note that this course has been developed independently from, and is not endorsed by, the International Baccalaureate. (But could you imagine how boring an official IB course would be?)

Take it slow or go go go!

Time is money. You're busy, I'm busy, everyone's busy.

I teach you the essential concepts in 4 exciting video tutorials totalling just 5 hours. That means this course is cram-friendly. You don't have to watch all of the videos; I reinforce similar concepts in each video. Of course, try to watch them all. You'll only learn more by watching more :-)

If you have a couple weeks or more on your hands, then you can also take advantage of the written guide that explains exactly how you should tackle each part of analysis in general and Paper 1 in particular. You can then apply the same skills to IOP, IOC, Works in Translation and Paper 2. Easy.
