How to Do It
Student recommendation letter requests can also be in a form outline as seen in the images above. When you make your recommendation letter request, you need to make sure that you provide the important details on what you need their recommendation for.
Here are some few key points you need to consider when making your request:
- Know who to ask. You can’t just randomly ask a teacher passing by the hall or a professor who is having their lunch. You need to ask a teacher who you are most acquainted with. Ask the teach who knows you best.
- What do you need it for? Specify what kind of recommendation letter you need. For example, do you need a recommendation letter for applying to get a scholarship or do you need a recommendation letter for college acceptance? There are different kinds of recommendation letter and you need to let them know what you need.
- Know when to request. Writing a recommendation letter takes time and you need to give your teacher some time to be able to create a good recommendation letter with you. So, make a request ahead of time.
- Help out your teacher. It helps them in creating a recommendation letter you need to help you get accepted if you provide all of the written documents that may help them for reference. Occasionally, having a meeting with your teacher for discussion allows them to know and understand you better and able to write a better evaluation of you.
- Let them know what you need. Giving them a sort of outline on what kind of recommendation letter you need, you can help make your recommendation letter substantial.
- Know when to follow up. As stated before, writing a recommendation letter takes time, regardless of how experienced your teacher is, give them enough time in writing it. You can make a follow-up if your deadline is within a week and there is still no word from your teacher about your recommendation letter.
