Dear Mr. Nissen,

As an NTA-certified tutor with 5+ years of experience in both in-person and remote tutoring, I was happy to see your opening advertised for a math and English tutor at Arch Tutoring, Inc. I know how much you value client satisfaction—which can be hard to maintain with remote employees. That’s why I’m pleased to share that I maintained 95% client feedback at Proveo Learning, with a list of over 30 clients at a time.

Your job ad places emphasis on tutoring to Common Core, SAT, and ACT tests. I scored in the top 1% on the SAT, ACT, and GMAT, and raised client SAT scores by an average of 40% for hundreds of retest clients. I also helped high school and college students increase their grades one whole grade on average. In the process, I received over 30 commendations from students for my active listening skills and empathy. I believe I have the ability to help improve your clients’ standings and your company.

I’ve been wanting to make a switch to working for Arch Tutoring for 18 months. Through my NTA membership, I interact with several of your current tutors, and all of them speak so highly of the work environment there. Could we set up a time soon to discuss how my interpersonal and active listening skills can grow your client list?

Best regards,

Kelly Nores
