Dear courses when he enrolled into my courses

Dear Sir or Madam,  I am honored to recommend one of my intelligent students, Mr. Rui Zuo, for the acceptance into your graduate program. I will feel delighted if my introduction of this excellent student is able to assist your university in the assessment of his Master’s program application.  I came to know Mr. Zuo in the year of 2006 when he took my course “Modern Design Technology”. During that semester, Mr. Zuo successfully proved himself to be industrious and conscientious in the academic study. As the lecturer of this course, I was deeply impressed by his strong abilities in the independent learning and the quick absorption of the new knowledge. Unlike other academic courses, some concepts in my class were very abstract for most students. However, Mr. Zuo was able to master those tricky concepts quickly and accurately. Moreover, he could apply those concepts in the practical case studies skillfully. During the practice, he did not choose to be a copycat when he was confronted with the conflicts with the theoretical authorities. Instead, he often put forward his own views that were based on his intensive study. Once there was any question, Mr. Zuo discussed with me in details and never gave up until figuring out the solution. His persistence in doing his own research gained my high praise. At the end of that term, arduous efforts brought him a satisfactory result. Mr. Zuo got A in the final exam, which was among the top two in the class.  In 2007, Mr. Zuo had the opportunities to fully demonstrate his superb talent in experiments and design courses when he enrolled into my courses “Experiment of CAD/CAM & NC Machining Technology” and “Numerical Control Technology”, which assigned the same proportion to the theoretical studies and laboratorial activities. Hence, I was able to observe Mr. Zuo’s academic performance closely and know this student better. Through our conversation, he showed me a wide range of knowledge on his major such as the deep and thorough understanding of the CAD/CAM, CNC programming code and the numerical control as well as the strong experimental ability, all of which are considered to be the essential attributes for being a qualified engineer. At the end of the courses, Mr. Zuo managed to design the experimental devices independently. I felt so glad that this young student could make such a great achievement.  Due to his spontaneous intellectual capacity and incessant hardworking, Mr. Zuo’s experiments and design courses got high marks among the class.  In addition to the impressive independent research ability, Mr. Zuo has been notable for being a good team player. Owing to his protruding capability, Mr. Zuo was elected to be the team leader in several group projects and helped the groups fulfill the missions in high quality. For instance, I once organized a presentation competition in my class for groups that wanted to earn the bonus mark. On behalf of the whole team, with the unanimity of all members, Mr. Zuo selected a challenging topic and interpreted the complicated concepts with supporting materials and experimental data to make his presentation attractive and easy to follow. Eventually, his wonderful presentation did not abuse the members’ trust and won the bonus mark for the whole group. Through my observation, the cooperativeness and sense of responsibility exhibited in teamwork make me firmly believe that Mr. Zuo has well prepared for conquering any difficulty in the future.   Besides, it is worth mentioning that Mr. Zuo is an all-round student. Not only in Mathematics, Physics, Statistics and other subjects, his powerful advantage in innovation, critical thinking and self-management also distinguished him among students and enabled him to reach the top place. As far as I know, he was awarded the Sinoma Scholarship due to his outstanding performance (top 3% in the faculty).  Another aspect I hope to mention is Mr. Zuo’s language ability in Chinese, English and Japanese. I found that he has a good command of these languages. During the experiments and design courses, I noticed he often borrowed academic journals and magazines written in English and Japanese. He told me his motivation for studying foreign languages was to know the new global trend and development in the field of mechanical engineering. As the learning went on, he was able to read academic papers in English and Japanese smoothly and simply communicate with a foreign professor in English or Japanese. His high language proficiency as well as his genial and adaptive disposition would definitely help him accustom himself to a new surrounding in a short period of time without any barrier.   All in all, as a promising young man with blazing intelligence combined with diligence, Mr. Zuo deserves my first-rate evaluation. I recommend Mr. Zuo to you without reservation and I believe that he will produce outstanding work in your university as he did in ours. Yours Sincerely,
