as a teacher in department of biology, nankai university, a leading university in china, i am very pleased to take this opportunity to recommend one of my favorite students to your phd program.
in september, XX, miss zhang was my students in general biology, the first professional course they take in the field. she likes it very much. i teach her in an open and interactive manner, she is active and passionate about answering class questions. miss zhang is bright, energetic and enthusiastic girl who loves speaking out her own ideas. she never escapes from those points of which she is skeptical. apart from that, she often puts forward her ideas upon questions and exchanges all of her innovate ideas with me after class.
upon ending of general biology course, i asked my students to write an essay upon their understanding of biology. i discovered miss zhang’s essay was so impressive and persuasive; her careful essay comes from dozens of references to biology literatures. in essay miss zhang stretched out her creative thinking upon status quo of biological research and branches in the field of biology. all of this speaks to her creative and logical and scientific thinking capability. i am gladly to say that miss zhang has a clear understanding about general biology, that comprehension has been reflected fully in her essay. therefore miss zhang got a full point for her essay in her class, and other students took it as model essay for granted.
i believe miss zhang’s industriousness, passion and dedication will make her an ideal candidate you are seeking for your program, so i highly recommend her without any hesitation to you. and i will greatly appreciate it if you could accept her into your program.
dear sir / madam:
in the capacity of ×× of class ×, no. × middle school of ××, p. r china, i am writing with pleasure to recommend mr. ×× to your esteemed university.
i have known mr. × as a resourceful and goal-oriented individual since 20××, when he, as a freshman, attended the first lecture i delivered, at the beginning of which he asked perceptive and challenging questions with conspicuously typical english. then at the final exam of the first term, he got ×× which seems a bit lower, but if you take the difficulty of the test papers and my strict grading into account, you will understand why such a score is still among the top five. undoubtedly, he got excellent scores on other courses and ranked among the top 5% of his class during the rest years of his high school study.
to my knowledge, mr. × is not only strong in academics, but also in sports and social activities. he was the captain of the ×× team of our school and led the team to win the champianship for × successive years. he was also one of the main founders of the first academic club --"××" of no × middle school.
after his graduation, he still keeps in touch with me from time to time and i am pleased to see that he proved his outstanding capability by applying to study abroad. therefore i feel very delighted when he told me he would like to pursue his advanced studies in your honored program. i am confident that mr. ×will contribute greatly to your program as well as he did in no. ×. please do not hesitate to contact me if you need more information about my top student mr. ×.
It is my pleasure to recommend Mr. Fu-ping Wang for his application to graduate studies in your school.
Mr. Wang has been my research assistant of the National Science Council’s project "The United States and the United Nations’ Financial Crisis: The Role of U.S. Congress" since September 1997. His major responsibilities include information collecting, analyzing and translating. He is an enthusiastic and progressive young man with extremely high potentiality. Mr. Wang is not only quick at learning and good at solving difficult problems, but also with a logical mind that enables him to effectively analyze difficulties. All the work handed to him was completed satisfactorily. Actually, he is so reliable that I assign him with heavy responsibilities. With his help, I have been able to spend more time in writing the research paper. I really consider myself very fortunate to have such a capable assistant.
I am certain his diligence, coupled with a good competence and pleasant personality, will assure him of academic achievements in his future academic pursuits. I strongly recommend his admission without any reservation.
Dear Admission Office：
I am writing to strongly recommend Miss/Mr。 XXXX for admission into the famous University of Waterloo。
Through teaching and informal consultation， I had chances to get to know her/him academic potentials and her/him ideals before she/he left for Canada。 In my opinion she/he can be reliably graded as one of the best undergraduates here in 20xx grade students with majors in our department。 Miss/Mr。 is apparently a very bright student， with special interests and enjoyment in mathematics especially in passionate and innovative ways of tackling and solving various problems in mathematics。 Perhaps her/his present mathematics scores in Canada could support my view。 She/he has very good observatory skills in experiments and can easily glean essence from complicated concepts， phenomena or conditions。 Enthusiastic for novelty and creative thinkings and as evidence for leadership potentials， she can easily influence her/his classmates in both curricular and extracurricular activities， though only within not a long period before her/his transfer from this institution to another school in Canada， a brave move toward next stage of personal challenge and fulfilment。 I was particularly impressed by Miss/Mr。 XXX career goal of aiming for excellence in academic education and achievements in her/his chosen field。
Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can be of further assistance。
Dear Admission Officer,
As Miss##### course instructor in Computer Information Networks, Computer Application System and Digital Library & Technology ever since September, 20xx during her undergraduate period in Northwest University, I know very well her academic competence and overall expertise; therefore, I take it my pleasure to present you this letter furnishing my commendation on her.
Miss Zhang preliminarily attested to her excellence in information retrieval, analysis, integration and computer application in October, 20xx, when she assisted me in the network information survey of ‘The Application Status of Mobile Library in China’. As far as I know, she spent a whole week collecting data of mobile library application status of 23 provinces, 4 direct-controlled municipalities, 2 special administrative regions and 5 autonomous regions across the country through the Internet and listed relevant information according to the theory of balanced score card. In her later paper ‘The Practical Significance of Consociation of Traditional Digital Library and Mobile Library—Exemplified by the TWIMS System of Tsinghua University’ published on Library and Information Service, comparison was made from angles of both time and space. Her discourse about the insufficiency in mobile library development in China as well as corresponding solutions was quite incisive and impressive.
Having taught Miss Zhang for over two years, I get a good understanding of her independent research ability, innovative ideas and rigorous academic attitude. In the meantime, she showed her particularly amicable personality and cheerful disposition in conducting herself with others.
As an excellent student assembled of all the ingredients to further achievements in information studies, Miss Zhang has my strong recommendation. And I am confident of her candidature for your program. Much appreciation for your favorable consideration of her application.
