Dear Ms. Perez,
I am applying for the Graduate Teaching Assistant position available with Central Michigan University.
I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management & Administration and I would like the opportunity to use my skills to become a valued member of your university. I am currently holding this position with a small college but I would like to enhance my career by working for a larger facility such as yours.
My responsibilities include taking part in class discussions, field trips and helping to find appropriate materials used for teaching. I also create exams, grade assignments, evaluate and record grades. I assign lab projects, teach students how to use the lab equipment in a safe manner and I make sure all students are following the rules.
I have outstanding verbal and written communication skills and reading comprehension. I have the ability to listen to what others are saying so that we can have a professional discussion about the topic. I can also convey the information I am trying to get across in an effective manner.
I am very perceptive and can tell a lot by the student’s reactions to what they see and hear. I have excellent reasoning abilities, good judgment and time management skills. I have the skills needed to monitor and access the performance of students and my own teaching skills to look for ways to improve and be more efficient.
I continue to stay updated on all the latest information related to this field. I have the ability to find and use the best instruction methods based on the situation to ensure students have the appropriate materials needed for learning.
You can reach me for an interview by calling (555)-555-5555.
