  • How Instructor Jackson Huang Used the 5-Step Diamond Method 💎 to Get a 20/20 for his final Paper 1 exam...

  • The ONE thing you're NOT doing that's making you lose Paper 1 marks like water gushing out of an unplugged sink...🚰

  • The 45 Most Important Literary Devices... and the 1 Device that You Should STOP Analyzing So Much! (Pss: it's "diction"!)

But wait...

There is hope! 🎉

There is a reason you are losing marks.

👉 You are breaking certain unspoken 'laws' of analysis.

YES. Just like in Math and Physics... there are laws, there are rules.

And you're BREAKING them in every sentence you write.

That's why your teacher scribbles those mysterious circles and ?s on your essays.

You see, the key to getting a 7 in IB English is to understand these rules.

And once you do...

  • It becomes effortless to tell the difference between good and bad analysis--so you will never produce another piece of lacklustre analysis in your life!
  • It becomes easy to structure your paragraphs on-the-fly while maintaining logic and organization, because you'll have a system--a formula.
  • It becomes second-nature to turn your ideas into coherent pieces of analysis that WOW your teacher and trigger a subconscious standing ovation from your examiner.

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

After much sweat and real tears (yep), plus an amazing teacher (shoutout to Ms Philpott), I figured out how to write and structure 7-level analysis. Consistently. As a result, I got a 20/20 in my final Paper 1, and taught my method to others so that IB can be a little bit easier for all of us.

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.

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.”

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.

  • 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.
