How to request one from your instructor

S-TESL grads can request letters of reference from their instructor(s). However, please be considerate of their time. You can help ensure a smooth process by providing:

  • complete information on the form;
  • a self-addressed stamped envelope with sufficient postage;
  • at least two weeks to complete your request.

Requests for letters of reference cannot be faxed or emailed to your instructor as a self-addressed stamped envelope is required. If the instructor no longer works at S-TESL, you must contact the instructor privately.
