2 minute read
Write a letter to a former teacher.

Q- You are applying for a job and need a letter of recommendation. Write a letter to a former teacher.

In your letter:

  • Give details of the job.
  • Explain why it is important to you.
  • Suggest what information your teacher could put in the letter.


Dear Ms. Caludia,

I hope everything at school is going well and that you were absolutely correct. I’m writing concerning a letter of recommendation that I require for a position for which I recently applied.

As I’m graduating the following month, I’ve applied for a position as an English instructor at a language training school in the United States. I will be in charge of helping the students learn the language by putting together the course and teaching resources, giving them homework, rating their work, and developing tailored programmes for them. 

The school has waived the in-person interview because I am now in India; hence, their choice is entirely based on my letter of recommendation. The Letter of Recommendation will be used by the institute to confirm the accomplishments, qualities, and talents listed in my resume. It will also be unambiguous evidence of my efforts at the training facility. 

I would appreciate it if you could mention my overall training performance at the teacher training institution in the letter of recommendation. In addition, please include a few sentences on my moral character and attitude towards work.

Please accept my sincere gratitude.

Yours sincerely,
