And it ALL changed in 1 Week...

In August 2022, Ethan improved from an IB4 to a 7 in 1 week after being stuck for a year.

By using the LitLearn Method created by IB45 graduate and LitLearn founder Jackson Huang, Ethan was able to jump two whole grade boundaries in 1 week.

How, you ask? No hacks, no shortcuts. As Ethan writes in his 5-Star TrustPilot review, he achieved this grade by "building up the fundamentals."

The LitLearn Method helps you fix the cracks and gaps in your analytical exam writing skills (crucial for all IB exams and assessment), which have been created by the trifecta of busy schools, busy teachers, and large classes.

After the IB, Jackson was accepted to the top US liberal arts colleges: Harvard, Amherst and Williams Colleges for the Class of 2019. He also received Vice-Chancellor scholarships to the University of Melbourne and University of Queensland in Australia.

Jackson scored a 20/20 in IB English Paper 1. He created LitLearn in 2016, and it has since been ranked as the #1 IB English Resource by LitLearn's IB English Method has helped 400,000+ students, and counting!

The One Reason Why You've Been Stuck in IB English...

Answer: The 'Cycle'

You know what I'm talking about, right?

Yep, that's "The Cycle".

SOOO many IB English students are stuck in this never-ending nightmare of:

1. Getting bombarded with new texts to read/watch and study

2. Then another essay or exam comes along (which you haven't had enough time to prepare for)

3. And then all you get is vague feedback (respect to the teachers, IB English teaching is hard, imagine giving feedback to 30 kids! 😭)

But there is a way out!

And I think you already know what it is.

The reason you're losing marks...

The reason you're making the same mistakes over and over...

Is that you do not have a firm grasp of analysis and its rules (yes, there are rules! And you're breaking them!).

I can't blame you though... given The Cycle you're stuck in 👆 

A couple years ago, I was in the same spot as you. Stressed IB student, obliviously breaking the unspoken laws of analysis, etc.

But after sitting down and TRULY understanding the fundamentals of analysis: why we do it, what to write, what NOT to write, HOW to write it...

It became so much easier to turn my ideas into coherent pieces of analysis that WOW'd my teacher.

As a result, I got a 20/20 in my final Paper 1. Since graduating, I've taught my method to others so that IB can be a little bit easier for all of us. LitLearn was voted the #1 IB English Resource 🎉 

🇮🇳 Aanya got the support she needed

She joined in May 2022 and went from IB4 to IB6 in 12 days.

By following the Analysis Simplified system, you will see AT LEAST a +1 grade boundary improvement in 4 weeks.

How are we so confident? Because we're seeing students get +2 jumps in HALF the time...

"My grade was stuck... I got LitLearn, everything changed"

After 1 week of LitLearn, Blake went from IB3 to IB6 💪

The improvement was so significant Blake's teacher "couldn't believe it was his work." (No, we didn't write anything for him. Blake simply absorbed the analysis secrets and put it into practice.)

"1 month ago I thought I was going to fail my exam... now I have full confidence in myself to get a 6 or 7"
Both Chloë Olutmehin and Blake Oliveira believe that Analysis Simplified is the "best English course out there for IB students".

This is the reason why LitLearn is voted the #1 IB English Resource for 2022 by

🇭🇰 Valerie's "only regret is not joining the course sooner"

Valerie joined in March 2022 and saw immediate 📈 in 2 weeks 🎉

Another 5-star TrustPilot review from a May 2022 student!

Valerie has gone to the trouble of writing a review and SPECIFICALLY mentioning her regret... so that you don't make the same mistake of delaying.

🇨🇦 Lareina's 3-Week IB English Makeover

From a low IB5 to an exemplar IB7 Paper 1 in just 3 Weeks

"You and your course have helped me improve SO MUCH in only 3 weeks (!!)" 🎉
Lareina felt nervous before her May 2022 IB English finals. She joined Analysis Simplified and immediately sent her Paper 1 practice essay to Jackson for feedback. It scored a low 5.

After following the 7-Day Study Plan, and watching the Guided Analysis lessons...

Lareina sent in an absolutely AMAZING 7-level Paper 1 essay... just 3 weeks later 🤯

"It's clear that he cares about his students" - Lareina Shen
Lareina's essay is now used as an exemplar inside Analysis Simplified. How's that for situational irony? (Another technique you'll learn inside!)
Lareina's LitLearn testimonial

Chloë Olutmehin

She increased by 1 grade boundary in ~4 weeks!

Don't wait around. You could start improving today. And in 4 weeks of learning from the course... who knows?

While you spend a month debating whether to join, Chloë would've already reached the next level.

How Analysis Simplified Helped Regina

Regina took IB Russian A Lang Lit and STILL benefited from LitLearn's Analysis Method 🤯

Laszlo improved his Paper 1 mark by +100% in 3 months

by following the Analysis Simplified Study Plan

“Thank you so much for the course, it has really been helping a lot. I haven't even nearly finished and I went from an 8/20 to a 16/20 [on Paper 1] and 2nd in my class!”

Laszlo, Nov 2022 Exam Session

“Hi Jackson. Thank you so much for the course! After following your method of analysis for one year, my skills have improved and I am surprised my grade went from 5 to 7 in my recent prose commentary. Thank you for sharing your tips!”

Joyce Guo



But wait... there's more 😅

Andrew increased his Paper 1 by 6 marks in less than 5 weeks 📈
Ritu improved from borderline 6 to perfect 20/20s 🚀
Linda got significant results in less than 4 weeks 🏃‍♀️

“The course is really comprehensive and easy to digest. It’s been designed such that even students without a strong background like me can understand how to analyse like a Pro by the end of the course. The course is a wonderful tool if you wish to give your Paper 1 score a boost (mine [increased 6 marks] from 11 to [...] 17!).”

Andrew Wong, Nov 2016 Exam Session ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

“I went from a 16/20 in my Paper 1s to straight 20/20 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 [Jackson]! This really has been the best course I've paid for; it was like having a personal tutor.”

Ritu Gada, May 2017 Exam Session ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

“LitLearn helped me significantly improve my English paper 1 mark in such a small amount of time and I would very highly recommend it to anyone looking to do the same.”

Linda Matey, Nov 2016 Exam Session ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

And more reviews...

“Before this course I wasn’t able to select/analyse even half the techniques that were covered in the course but in just one day of having the course I was picking out techniques and points for analysis insanely quickly.”

Amina G, November 2016 Exam Session 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

“My favorite thing about this course is definitely the structure. Content is sectioned by days, which makes tackling large portions of learning easier to manage, examples and analysis advice are given for all literary techniques, and Jackson's consistent light humor helps to make the learning process fun! I feel like I have a much better conceptual understanding of how to tackle a Paper 1, and I've learnt more from Litlearn in a few days than I have from my own teacher. I'm incredibly grateful.”

Kylie, May 2022 Exam Session ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

“It’s really here when a lot of stuff is just “clicking”. For my entire life Lit subjects have been taught by the model “let’s read a chapter of a book and talk about it for thirty minutes.” It has worked okay... but has always left me without feeling I really understood the subject itself: what are we actually aiming to do here? In literature terms, “what is the purpose of an English essay?” has always been a bit of mystery for me. Your systematic course structure has already been immensely helpful in creating something of a theoretical understanding for the subject, and this structure outline is bringing a lot of that together.”

Johannes M, May 2018 Exam Session

“I would just like to say that these explanations are **so clear and amazing**. The examples you analyse help me understand on a deeper level. And you're funny too! I'm so glad I have this resource to back me up!! Keep on doing what you're doing!”


“thank you so much for this amazing course! It has come right on time for me! You put everything into a clear format which makes grasping concepts so much easier, plus your interesting and humorous personality always makes me look forward to learning from you :)”


“when I read 'exemplars' of good analysis, I felt that that the student was just repeating the same ideas with different words, and I didn't really understand the point of it. However, after reading this, I understand why each additional layer of information is important. (the analysis diamond is gold)”


“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.”

Kris Chari

Why you're not getting a 7...

And why your school classes aren't enough...

At school, your teacher likely focuses on teaching specific texts.

But there's not enough focus on the nitty-gritty. The "how to" of analysis. The nuts and bolts of writing 7-level analysis.

These are the practical skills that get you REAL exam + assessment results.

... and yet you're not learning them.

Here are just 3 of the most important skills:

  • 💡 How to effortlessly structure analysis using the Diamond Method
  • 💡 Why everything in analysis MUST lead back to the "writer's purpose"
  • 💡 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.

This refund policy applies to purchases throughout the year, except within two weeks of the final November and May IB English exam dates.

  • Is this course just for Paper 1?

    Analysis Simplified teaches analysis using short texts, in this case IB English Paper 1 texts. This is the optimal strategy: The skills learned in close reading are ESSENTIAL to success in the rest of IB English. The skills you learn here will benefit your scores in every other IB English assessment, because it all comes down to how well you can analyze a given text. Starting with Paper 1 is the best strategy.

  • How should I apply the LitLearn method learned in the course?

    You can start applying what you learn directly into your IB English orals, essays, and exams. The lessons we teach are fundamental to IB English and literary analysis. Start now, and your IB English marks in every area will thank you for your decision today.

  • How exactly will Analysis Simplified improve my grades?

    As you are aware, there are no magic pills or magic solutions. You can't wave a wand and suddenly get a 7 in IB English. But what you can do is learn how to write and structure analysis the RIGHT way. By following the 7-Day Study Plan, at your own pace, you will quickly begin to write better analysis and lose less marks on common mistakes plaguing your current IB English work.
