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, 2004, 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 or x x x:
I take great pleasure in recommending Ren Ren, one of my favorite students, for admission into your distinguished graduate program.
Mr. Ren was admitted in 1986 at 14 years of age into the SPECIAL CLASS for the GIFTED YOUTHS, my university 's unique program that caters to the intellectual needs of unusually talented Chinese youngsters.
It was a rare privilege he earned with his nearly impeccable完美的 academic performance through the years of his elementary and secondary school.
He impressed me almost as he entered into my university, a major cradle of China' s scientific and technological talents. At the time, members of the Gifted Class all had to spend half a month studying by themselves the principles of calculus and then take an exam so that we could evaluate their self-study capability.
Mr. Ren scored the highest grade in that exam. He also exhibited a keenly whetted mind during class discussions. To my regret at the time, his English was not as good as his mathematics or physics.
But I noticed he made a point of working especially hard in improving his English during his five undergraduate years with us.
By now, he seems to be at least as proficient in English as most of his former classmates in the Gifted Class. In my experience with Mr. Ren, I was impressed with not only his extraordinary intelligence but also his ambitions and persistence.
I am sure that Mr. Ren will be an outstanding student in any doctoral program that he may care to enroll in. So I would like to support him firmly in his quest recommendation into account when
considering his application. I would greatly appreciate it you decide to accept him as he wishes. Yours sincerely x x x x

June 22, 2011 To whom it may concern,
Ms. W has been my student since 2004. She is one of my most favorite students and on hearing that she is planning to pursue further study in your esteemed high school, I feel quite pleased to share with you my perspectives of Ms. W.
I taught her English for two years. Since I am always interested in student-oriented teaching method, I prefer the predomination of students’ discussions during the classes.
Group discussions concerning peer evaluations were organized, which offered me excellent opportunity to observe my students’ understanding of literature works and their unique perspectives concerning it.
That’s how I gradually noticed Ms. W and paid special attention to her. She was a very active student and eager to express her own opinion. Her essay titled A Talk on the Love Value of Ancient Woman was a perfect demonstration of her self-judgment. Her writing skills also set that essay a model, and I read it in my class.
Ms. W once told me that she is very interested in English Literature very much. So I encourage her to learn more and broaden her views by studying abroad.
I have contacted some of our graduates now studying in the United State, hoping that they could give Ms. W suggestions and helps. Now she has made her decision and I know I should give her unremitting supports.
I, therefore, give you my full support for Ms. W for her application for your high school program. I am convinced with her insight and passion in academic as well as her abundant experience she will definitely be a satisfying candidate.
If you have any further questions towards her, please do not hesitate to contact me directly. Jean Atkins English Teacher Email: Jatkins@gmail.com Cell: 86-1861104567
