Free Sample Letter of Recommendation in Education
As the tutor for Miss Furnival Han in writing her undergraduate thesis,
I greatly appreciate her for her solid grounding professional knowledge.
I found it my duty to recommend her for further studies abroad when she
asked me to do her the favor.
I began to know Miss Han when I received a commendatory letter from a
privately-run school. Our department has all along organized student
service programs in a community. Her class was engaged in a mutual aid
program at a private school, and Miss Han played a vital role in the
program. First of all it was her sincere attitude that won her class the
honor of serving in the program out of many class collectives. As the
program organizer, Miss Han did much investigation work prior to the
inauguration of the program. For example, she acquired information from
the college leadership in advance and distributed the workload according
to practical conditions (dividing the class into different groups
according to age and according to study capacities). The program was
carried out in proper order and yielded good effects, winning unanimous
good comments from both the college leadership and the community.
Besides, Miss Han's leadership capacity is also worth mentioning. She
began to assume the post of a study committee member when she was a
third-year student. Her gifted affinity and personal charms soon won her
the credit from her classmates. In less than in semester, her class
leapt from the last to the top of all classes in the same grade in terms
of academic records and style of study. Thanks to its outstanding
performance, the class was appraised as the top best in study style in
the whole college. Sure enough, extracurricular management and
organizing took up much of her time, but she made proper arrangements so
that she was among the best in her academic performance in her class and
she was excellent in GPA specialty above all.
When writing her Bachelor Degree thesis she told me she was greatly
interested in the studies on Thomas Hardy (1840 - 1926). I was really
shocked when she asked me the startling question whether on earth Hardy
was a fatalist or not. This was because few students would ever think of
raising such an in-depth question at that time. So I encouraged her to
probe deeper into the question. In between she thumbed through many
works by and about the English novelist and poet. This embraced some
highly sophisticated contents that taxed great comprehension efforts.
But in defiance of all difficulties she finished reading a dozen of very
difficult books, jotting down detailed notes in the meanwhile.
Encountering hard nuts to crack, she would ask for instructions modestly
and I was only too glad to probe deep with her because it was always so
pleasant to communicate with her. Her optimism makes her very agreeable
and affectionate to others. The strict logic and acumen of thought made
the process of thesis preparations in good order. Although she graduated
several years ago, she shows great respect for her teachers and comes to
visit me from time to time. I also like this student very much.
Due to limitations of research conditions in China today, I am very
eager that an excellent student like her may have the chance to study
abroad and make contribution to future researches in China.
