Every now and then, I have been asked to do a letter of recommendation, mainly from students (although I have received some from peers as well). Before you ask me to write a letter of recommendation as yourself the following:
Did you get A’s in my courses?
Did you have perfect attendance or near-perfect attendance?
Did you participate in class so that you are memorable?
If you answered “yes” to all three questions above continue reading, if not, I cannot recommend you.
In order for me to write a letter of recommendation, I need the following:
Write your own original letter of recommendation based on our interactions together
Use Google to find writing tips and examples of Letters of Recommendations
Send me the complete letter and I will use it to modify it to fit my observations
If you have any questions, please send me an email at:
