''Hello, my name is Tim Schmitz and I am 17 years old.
Before I started at Dots and Links, I had difficulties writing my assignments and starting them.
The first few lessons were quite easy because it was the start of the program. The troubles I had was to balance the times with my school projects, because the program really made my brain sweat and exhausted so when I came home I was lazy. Over time, I was able to manage all this because I got more used to it and the program motivated me as well.
A great help was also my amazing teacher Ms. Jennifer. Since she was German, it made it easier but also more challenging. She always made me switch between the languages while doing certain exercises which was very challenging but fun. She made the program better and more enjoyable for me.
Towards the end, I have noticed a lot of difference in my attention and motivation. Many teachers have noticed. Even my parents have noticed it a lot. My grades have improved in subjects like English, French and Science. I was lacking grades on these subjects to pass the MYP. I am very happy with my progress with myself and my school work. This has been an amazing adventure which I enjoyed even though it was tedious at times.''
