I am happy to write letters of recommendation for students who receive an ‘A’ in one of my classes. Due to many requests, and because I write original letters for each student, I require at least two weeks notice prior to the submission deadline.  Send me your resume, unofficial transcript, program details (and website, if available),  and points you would like me to emphasize in the letter.
