Recommendation Letter Sample 5


To Whom It May Concern

I have known Student Name for the past three years as he/she has taken the following courses which I teach: [list courses, give brief description of content of course]. As his/her professor, I have had an opportunity to observe the student’s participation and interaction in class and to evaluate the student’s knowledge of the subject matter. I would rate the student’s overall performance in these subjects as superior. This is evidenced by her grades–[state the grades].

[One or two specific examples of the student’s performance may be appropriate.] As part of his/her grade in [name of course], the student was required to prepare a paper. The paper was designed to measure the student’s ability to research, to analyze the results of the research, and to write. [Discuss how the paper submitted by the student indicated to you the student’s skills in these areas.] Based upon this, I rate the student’s skills as excellent.

Based upon the student’s academic performance and my understanding of the position for which the student is applying, I believe the student would perform (place overall evaluation here).

If you would like to discuss this further, please feel free to contact me.
