Asking an ex professor or tutor for a shining letter of recommendation can be useful in many, many avenues. You can use these for employment as personal character references, or as references for graduate school or college. These are usually procured via email contact, which is what our sample letter below will be designed for.


Email subject: John Doe Recommendation – Former Pupil


Professor Doe,


I hope you are keeping well and the previous few semesters have not been too hard on you – I must come back and visit yourself soon and see how the renovations came along.


I have been working in California for the past year as a 1st Line Technical Support agent with Microsoft, however my passion for all things theological has not gone away since you lit it inside of me, and I have decided to pursue my dream by applying to study it at California Graduate School of Theology. For this reason, I am writing to ask if you could write a letter of recommendation for myself in order to apply to the school. I hope this will not cause you any inconvenience.


Kind regards, and I hope to hear from you soon,


John Doe
