Sample Teaching Cover Letter and Resume

This student isn't applying for the typical job or internship, and so her dance education and experience is more important than her university experience. She also uses material from high school since she's had significant dance experience there.

Ms. Jennifer Rothwell, President
P.O. Box 54556
Cincinnati, OH 45254 

Dear Ms. Rothwell: 

After holding past employment in your company, I would like to re-apply for the position of a Dance Instructor for Creative Dance Productions during the summer of 2004.  

There are two main reasons I feel I am qualified to be a Dance Instructor for Creative Dance Productions. The first is my past employment with the company. I have been both an Apprentice Dance Instructor and a Dance Instructor for two consecutive years. As a result of working closely with you, I have demonstrated my strong work ethic and my abilities as a dancer and a leader. My experience as a Dance Instructor with your company has also assisted me in becoming skilled in working with children at a variety of age and dance levels. I have also gained valuable choreography experience which I have demonstrated to you over the past year.  

The second reason is my dance history. I have had 16 years of training including a wide variety of dance styles. I have also been involved in competitive dance at a middle school, high school and collegiate level. Since the age of 12 I have been in leadership positions with my dance team including being a Lieutenant and Co-Captain for multiple years.  

I look forward to becoming involved with your company for another year. I am available for an audition and interview at your convenience. Thank you for your time and consideration in reviewing my resume.

Subject: Dance Instructor for Creative Dance Productions 

I have chosen to apply for the position of a Dance Instructor for Creative Dance Productions. This is a company that organizes and runs competitions and summer dance camps for children between the ages of 4 and 19. I have previously been employed by this company for the past two summers; however, due to the competitive nature of employment, every employee is required to reapply each summer.  

The job seeks students 17 or older who have graduated from high school. They also require dance experience and prefer applicants who have a history of teaching and choreographing dances. Prospective employees are required to submit a resume and application to be reviewed. Those applicants who best meet the employer's qualifications will be invited to an audition and interview.  

I believe this is a very realistic and appropriate job for me. I fit all of the requirements including my age and previous dance experience. Since I have worked for the company in past years, I have a history of teaching and choreographing dances. The owner will also already have a strong perceptive of my work ethic and dedication to my job. I am looking forward to continuing my work at this company and strengthening my dancing and leadership abilities.
