Dear Sir or Madame,
It is with great pleasure that I write to recommend Courtney Alexander to you. I have known Courtney for the past two years and have had the pleasure of having her in my United States History class during her junior year. During that time I have found her to be a bright, diligent, affable young woman.
Courtney is not afraid of hard work, and is a team player. Her ability to work with her peers is a trait that will benefit her as she moves on to the next level. Throughout the year, she worked collaboratively with those seated around her in reviewing notes, going over possible examination material, and working through some of the more difficult concepts. Through her contributions to this ad hoc group, Courtney helped not only herself, but also others around her who were not progressing and improving as quickly as she was.
Courtney Alexander is undoubtedly a student with the potential for great success at the next level. Her natural abilities combined with her work ethic and ability to evolve academically and socially are a recipe for success in the years to come. I enthusiastically recommend her for admission to Indiana University.
If you have any questions or concerns in regards to Courtney, please feel free to contact me at (555) 555-5555. Thank you for your time.
