I have been asked to write a letter in support of Name’s application for a position as a Position in your company.

Name’s performance and contribution in class were superior. In my judgment, he is a bright, articulate and incisive student. Although somewhat reserved, he is not timid in taking positions or expressing himself. He was one of the few students that year who received extra credit on his final grade based on the quality of his classroom participation. Name’s performance on his final exams was excellent and he ranked near the top of the class.

Name was a student in my class this last semester. His frequent and enthusiastic participation in class discussion as well as his probing inquiries outside of class demonstrated the seriousness and dedication with which he approaches his schooling. On a personal note, Name possesses a quick wit and a warm personality.

Name was an asset to the hospital. He was always cheerful and willing to assist with any task. In addition, Name was motivated and interested in learning.

For all these reasons, I can highly recommend Name without reservation for your program. I know that he will perform well and be an asset to your program. Please feel free to contact me regarding this letter or my impressions of Name.
