Hear it straight from IB Economics students just like you!

“Dear Brad, I took your IB Economics course to prepare for mocks and actual exams. During these crazy times, in my HL Economics class I've had 4 teachers in 2 years, and straight up no economics taught for about 3 months. I truly struggled with the subject, I believed I was on pace for a 3. But after sitting down, and grinding your entire course about 3-4 times, I felt strong about economics in the IB. I want to thank you because today I found out I got a 6 in the class, something I NEVER imagined, even after exams and your courses, I was aiming for a 5, satisfied with a 4. Thank you for teaching me a subject that at one point I saw as a burden and a mistake, and turning it into something i enjoyed debating with my friends. You are an amazing teacher, thank you again.”

Benjamin - Class of 2021

“Hi Brad, I have just finished my IB economics exams in Spain, and just would really like to thank you, because everything I wrote on those exams was thanks to you! I changed from philosophy to economics really late in the first year of diploma, and coincidentally a world pandemic started so all my economics classes were online, and its fair to say that things weren't working out, my teacher promised to help me catch up with all the economics work I had to catch up on, but he never did. So I did a little investigation and found your platform and saved my course. So I just wanted to take the time to send you an email to thank you (once again). This may sound strange but I feel like I know you after the courses. Also, your personality is very likeable which makes learning even more fluid, I'm sure you're a great teacher in Chile! I don't know if you'll end up reading this email anytime soon, but I felt the need to express my gratitude, ill definitely recommend it to some of my friends if DP1. Have a nice day!”

Lucia - Class of 2021

“Hello Brad! I just got my IB results and got a 6 in economics and was only a few marks away from a 7! Once again this would not have been possible without your online course. Thank you so much! Hahaha I just felt like sharing the news with you, as I really do consider you my only economics teacher! Thank you and take care!”

Lucia - Class of 2021

“Dear Brad, I’m so excited to tell you I got a 7 in Economics so I’m going to be accepted to my school with 40 points overall. I wanted to stress how absolutely incredibly thankful I am for your help and your lessons, I truly credit you for this achievement. Thank you so so so much! ”

Fiona - Class of 2021

“OMG! I am so grateful of coming across this website. Doing economics for the first time and also at the HL level was stressful but now I am able to understand the concepts. One concept that I had a really hard time with was dead weight loss but now I completely understand how it occurs. I AM SO ECSTATIC!”

Rampranav - Class of 2021

“Changed my life! I've been using this website since Covid-19 took over and it has helped me so much for studying IB. The notes are really useful and the courses so well organized that it makes it easy and enjoyable to learn heavy content”

Pratiti - Class of 2021

“This website is the holy bible of IB Economics. Everything is extremely organized, all the concepts are explained properly (with lots of details), and it is easy to understand. Also, it is important to mention that there are notes/presentations to download for every single topic that contains all the information one could possibly need. Mr. Cartwright, you are the man. Props to you for making such an amazing website. ”

Nicolas - Class of 2021

“You have saved me regarding this subject! I am studying with three kids at home due to the Corona virus. The school I am studying for have not adapted to distance teaching. That have the effect that I am not being supported with the quality that I need to succeed. Thanks to your amazing presentation of the subject, you have made this a breeze to learn. When I have my exam in two weeks, I will be confident that I will nail the test. Many thanks for sharing your knowledge in Economics and the time you have put in to making this high-quality content!”

Gregor - Class of 2021

“Dear Mr Cartwright, I started the IB course in 2019, taking Economics as one of my higher level subjects. I found microeconomics easy, but macroeconomics really took its toll on me and I was left with no understanding of the fundamentals by Christmas. I was getting worried, and that's when I found a post on reddit by one of your students promoting your website, and I fell in love with your style of teaching. If it wasn't for you, I don't think I could've got this far in economics and come to love the subject. Since then, I've been achieving a level 7 in all of my tests and my mock exams, and my teacher has happily put me down as a level 7 in the calculated route (I live in the UK), and he has said I am one of his best students. Your energetic, kind, and caring nature shone through in your videos and have motivated me to always see the world as my classroom, and learn from everything around me :) Once again, thank you so much for everything--I never could've gotten a 7 without you!”

Anirudh- Class of 2021

“This website has made me love economics! It is well structured in the sense that it goes from small simple concepts, then building upon each other to reach a well-rounded knowledge about the topic. That is excellent for comprehension when you learn something new. The thing I most enjoyed and found very useful was that towards the end of the unit, the videos start focusing on possible real-life scenarios which make the viewer think of what to write and add in an evaluation for a test. The best part is that all possible "textbook" answers are given throughout the videos which are great when writing an evaluation. Having all textbook answers focused my thinking on solutions in the evaluation that are not mentioned in the textbook, for example, discussing ethical and or social consequences in addition to the economic ones. I loved this website and Brad's way of making almost any topic ”

IB Economics Teacher Workshops Testimonials

Hear it straight from IB teachers who attended last year!

“I am so glad I attended Brad Cartwright's IB Extended Essay Workshop, since it was insightful, informative, and useful. His practical, specific, and encouraging approach really outlined the role of the supervisor and how to guide the student to his/her best abilities. Thank you for showing us "what and how" we can bridge the objectives of the tasks and the mark scheme. I would absolutely recommend this, and all of his other workshops -- whether you are a new or experienced IB teacher.”

Sofia - Extended Essay Teacher Workshop

“This workshop wasn’t “extra” for my professional development. I would say it was ESSENTIAL! As someone new to the IB curriculum and teaching Economics, the workshop covered all the vital concept I need to know, to survive my first semester of teaching. Your workshop contained high-quality content, that was delivered with passion and a genuine desire to share your knowledge and present it in a way it becomes useful to teachers, with different levels of experience. In terms of what we covered and were able to achieve in only 2 days exceeded all expectations, the pace was fast but reasonable. You answered every question with grace, simplicity and absolute competence demonstrating your mastery in the field. I loved your energy, passion and generosity as a facilitator- and it is clear that it is your mission to help us become the best teachers we can be.”

Maxine | The New Teacher Workshop

“I highly recommend Brad’s Extended Essay Teacher Workshop, regardless of your experience level in teaching IB Economics. The biggest problem that the majority of us face as IB teachers is the lack of certainty on what and how to guide the EE process. Brad’s style of delivery is clear and well paced, and he provided us with solid strategies and resources to guide our students through the Extended Essay process. Another thing that Brad did was that he assumed zero prior knowledge. I loved this, because as a new IB Economics teacher I have felt a bit overwhelmed in the other workshops I have attended. The fact that he explained each area of the Extended Essay process in a non-judgmental way made it easy for everyone to ask any question that they wanted. Finally, it comes through clear as day that Brad really cares. IB teachers need support, understanding and guidance, not judgement and ridicule. I got so much peace of mind from this workshop and left feeling empowered to guide my students. ”

Jonathan - Extended Essay Teacher Workshop

“Brad's workshop was just what I needed to feel more confident when teaching Market Power. He clearly explained IB expectations, had great teaching ideas, and shared resources that I immediately used in the classroom. Plus it was super enjoyable, because Brad is a remarkable person and dedicated professional. I highly recommend his workshops and his online materials—they are very helpful!”

Wendy | Teaching Market Power Workshop

“The most helpful part of Brad's workshop was the clarification on structure of the Internal. Assessment and the best type of articles to use to get the most out of the IA commentary. I was very grateful for Brad's continued ability to answer my questions throughout to ensure that I fully understood what was being communicated and could challenge some of my current practice. The session was very interactive and almost personalized.”

Fiona - The Internal Assessment Teacher Workshop

“I can say without reservation that this was the best IB teacher workshop I have attended. Not only was it completely beneficial in meeting my needs, but Brad’s relaxed yet enthusiastic approach allayed many of the concerns I have as a first year IB Economics teacher.”

John | New Teacher Workshop

“The best part of Brad's Internal Assessment workshop was the practical and easily actionable step by step approach he took us through. It was very much a "How to" workshop that cut through unnecessary material and explained to us exactly how to guide students through the Internal Assessment Process. It was a very powerful and empowering workshop. I highly recommend any of Brad's teacher workshops!”
