To Whom It May Concern
On hearing Mr. XXX’s application to your esteemed university, I’d like to make, with great pleasure and full confidence, a sincere recommendation for this impressive and promising young man. I have had the distinct pleasure of acting as the head teacher for his class and having known him ever since he first set his foot in our school. Throughout the past three years I have witnessed how he sprouts and flourishes by making an all-around demonstration of his academic and moral excellence. I am fully convinced that he will be a deserving candidate for your admission.
It is beyond any doubt that XX is a top-notch student in his overall academic performance, in particular Mathematics. I’ve long heard that XXXX had taken part in many Mathematical contests and won lots of prizes, the first being a third prize for thesis writing on the learning method for Mathematics when he was merely a fourth grade student in primary school. Gifted as he is, I’ve never found any trace of complacency on his face and instead, he constantly strives with an eager heart for improvement to even greater perfection. Those favorable comments I gained from other teachers, in particular the teacher of Mathematics, proves to be a solid validation for his inherent diligence and inquisitiveness which I believe, will continue to spur him on to his ceaseless exploration in the sphere of learning.
You will be completely off base if you refer to XXX, based on my words above, as a geek or nerd glued to a bookish way of learning in his own world without a caring heart to the outside world. His whole-hearted dedication to academic pursuit, on the contrary, adds to his readiness to and willingness to help with an earnest mind. Thanks to his outgoingness and obligingness, it seems quite easy for him to get along well with others and for many times I see him surrounded by his classmates seeking for advice and support. His being voted as the commissary in charge of organization best exemplifies his strong moral fiber and influence.
Therewith I must make special note of his extraordinary organizational capability exhibited in his planning and organizing class activities. I can merely provide a general outline and count on him to flesh out the rest of details. The strong sense of responsibility and detail-oriented character makes him a trustworthy individual with a thoughtful mind who can bring everything into full play and work them out to perfection. A good case in point is the class group travel to Nanjing, a neighboring city of over 300km from Shanghai in the first year. It is out of his constructive grouping advices that everyone, including the teachers, can enjoy the travel to their hearts’ content without any worries of safety or getting lost. His craving for details and perfection will undoubtedly be valuable assets to be applied to the Mathematical settings in which a minimal derivation may result in wide divergence.
All in all, from Mr. XXX I can see beyond a promising young man, with all his diligence, moral excellence, and remarkable academic performance, ready to exert his full devotion to the mathematical exploration of wonders. I always hold him in high esteem and I sincerely recommend XX as the ideal candidate for your honored university. If you have any further questions regarding his performance, please do not hesitate to contact me via email (邮箱) or telephone call (电话号码) at your convenience. Thank you.
