πŸ₯‡ "I only started using LitLearn an hour ago and already feel like I've learnt more than I have in 2 years."

Kylie C, May 2022 Exam Session

Are you confused about how to structure your IB English essays?

Do you struggle with turning your ideas into organized, 7-level analysis?

Are you unclear about what "good analysis" looks like, and the exact steps to achieve it?

  • You've tried practice papers.
  • You've googled.
  • You've incorporated your teacher's advice.

But your grades just aren't going up... 😞

Escape Chaos

Good news: It doesn't have to feel this way! πŸŽ‰

Yes... English analysis seems vague to most students...

But once you unlock the RULES of analysis... it's not that hard at all πŸ˜…

  • It becomes effortless to tell the difference between good and bad analysis--so you can avoid writing bad analysis
  • It becomes easy to structure your paragraphs on-the-fly in an exam while maintaining logic and organization
  • It becomes second-nature to turn your ideas into coherent pieces of analysis that WOW your teacher.

A couple years ago, I was in the same spot as you. Stressed IB student, etc., etc.

After much sweat and real tears (yep), I figured out how to write and structure great analysis. As a result, I got a 20/20 in Paper 1, and taught my method to others so that IB can be a little bit easier for all of us.

Your Instructor

Jackson Huang
Jackson Huang

Jackson Huang is an IB 45 grad. He was admitted to Harvard, Amherst and Williams Colleges for the Class of 2019; he also received full scholarships to the University of Melbourne and Queensland. He won the 2013 International Brain Bee Championship, and presented his chemistry EE to Nobel Prize laureate Buckminster Fuller in the US.

In 2014, he scored 20/20 in IB English Paper 1 with only two main points (because he understood how structure + analysis really work--no, you don't need 3 points). After graduating, Jackson taught IB English for two years before founding LitLearn in 2016. LitLearn's IB English Method has since helped 400,000+ students.

Why your school classes haven't been enough...

At school, your teacher likely focuses on non-analytical things like:

  • global issues
  • specific poems, prose, plays, or non-literary works

But there's not enough focus on the practical, bread-and-butter skills that gets you real exam + essay results.

Here are just 3 of the most important skills:

  • πŸ’‘ How to effortlessly structure analysis using the Diamond Method
  • πŸ’‘ Why everything in analysis MUST lead back to the "writer's purpose"
  • πŸ’‘ How to structure points cohesively like a chain of dominos
  • ... and more...

Maybe your teacher is too busy to teach these skills (IB teaching is intense: respect to the teachers out there ✊). Or maybe your teacher has forgotten what it was once like to be a student like you... without these analytical super-powers.

So that's why I made IB English Analysis Simplified.

To teach you how to easily structure your analytical paragraphs and essays.

To help you gain the same practical skills that got me a 7 in IB English and a 20/20 in my Paper 1 final.

In IB English Analysis Simplified, we teach you the essential rules of analysis in 7 days with simple explanations and plenty of examples.

Analysis Simplified teaches the STRUCTURE of analysis. The lessons just happen to be in (simple) English!

"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." - Ritu Gada

Kris Chari, LitLearn student

I can’t tell you how much I value this course, and I haven’t found anything even remotely this helpful. I particularly love the way Jackson breaks down what seems to be such a daunting task in a structured, methodical way.

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