Dear concerned authorities,

I have been passionate about teaching children since the time I started getting pocket money by tutoring children in high school.

Since then I have had 6 years of experience in teaching, both middle school and high school children in English and History. I have taught children who are diverse in the range of their abilities. I have been successful at being a good role model at school., boosting the morale and achievements of the students. I have been successful at increasing the average percentage of my class at my present school by 18%. I believe that makes me a good candidate for the role. 

I can be contacted at 5-8 pm starting tomorrow. Expecting to speak with you soon.

Yours faithfully,

Jane Doe.
