Dear Mr. XXXX:

It is with great pleasure that I write this recommendation for XXXX XXXX. I have known XXXX for over five years now, and until recently, I have been XXXX’s teacher at our religious center. XXXX was a student of mine through his secondary part of religious education, and I found him to be consistently engaging and extremely friendly. He is currently my teacher’s assistant as we teach 9th grade together on Saturdays. He has also worked for me at math learning center, in which he assisted students with math skills, understanding of math concepts, and overall school performance, while building confidence and forging a positive attitude toward the subject.
Besides being a dedicated and committed student/worker, XXXX is a take charge person who has infinite creative ideas and who uses his talent wisely. He is an extremely encouraging student: highly motivated, determined, and knowledgeable. Mr. XXXX was one of the most consistent students who showed up week after week, and brought a positive attitude to the table. It has been a joy and a privilege to have him in my class and as an employee. His sense of humor and easy-going personality has been much appreciated. XXXX has shown great enthusiasm and leadership skills. He has proven himself to be a self-motivated, hard working individual with a passion for learning.
I would highly recommend Mr. XXXX as a candidate for the internship this summer at New York University Langone Medical Center. He’s a great team player and would make a great asset to any organization, and I am sure he will continue to do so as he grows in your medical program.

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

Sincerely,




XXXX XXXX,
Director
