Z, one of the most outstanding students at our school I have ever had, is definitely brilliant enough to be admitted to most prestigious universities in China such as Peking University and Tsinghua University. He is the top student in the honor class, which taught top students the most rigorous and advanced courses. He ranked the top 20 out of 1650 during final examinations and kept 4. 0 GPA. Now that he is determined to apply to American university, I will be more than willing to write the recommendation letter in support of him.
As a top student that had much insight in learning new theories or problems, he could always put forward certain good questions when I was giving lectures. Though the answer to these questions are often exactly the points that I would put forward later even if he didn’t ask them, the effect of interaction-based learning is much better than one-way teaching because through interaction students will have deeper impression and understanding in the knowledge they learned. He also enhanced the academic excellence in class by competing friendly with other top students.
I was impressed when he competed with his friend in becoming the first student that arrived in classroom to study every morning and avoid lie-in. Their competence invoked other students to get up earlier too and create a better studying atmosphere. He was also excellent in group works, especially in which he worked together with students who fell behind. I could always see him explain questions patiently to other students and assigned the work mission in an appropriate way that everyone had the ability to finish theirs while also learn something useful.
On the whole, George is student who can not only top in study himself but also inspire others to work together and create academic excellence, so I sincerely offer you my highest recommendation of him and hope that he will be admitted by his dream school, your university. And I also expect he will work hard as usual to make further achievements and to bring a credit to his teacher and the school. Sincerely yours, Head Teacher
