Your are applying for a job and need a letter of reference.
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 reference.
Dear Mr. Smith,
It has been a while since we spoke last time at the graduation and I appreciated the effort of tireless teaching from you which shaped me well in the subject of English back in the day. I am writing this letter to you because I am applying for an English teacher position and I needed a letter of your reference.
To be specific, the job that I am applying is a primary school that near my house and I will be teaching English to the age of six to twelve years old. Basic grammars and oral presentation are the main focuses and I will also be organising many fun activities for them to enhance their concentration in class.
More importantly, it is my first job and it has always been my dream to teach children so therefore, it would be great if you could write me a letter regarding my academic results and also my study preferences overall.
Thanks again for your help and I look forward to your reply.
