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 had the distinct pleasure of having her in my United States History class during her junior year. In that time I have found her to be a bright, diligent, affable young woman.
When thinking about Courtney and her abilities as a student, the one thing that keeps coming to mind is her aforementioned diligence. Courtney outworks everyone. In the beginning of the year, she had some trouble grasping general concepts from specific facts, which was reflected in her short answer and essay writing. However, as the year proGREssed, so did her ability to grasp even the most complex of issues. She took in each and every bit of constructive criticism given to her and worked to correct her mistakes. By the end of the first semester, her essays and written answers were vastly improved, as were her grades in the course. This trend continued through the second semester until Courtney finished up the course with an 88 average, well up from the 84 that she had ended the first semester with.
