Letter of Recommendation - Paul Thaler

  1. 1. Dear Sir or Madam: I am delighted to provide this reference on behalf of Clarence Rivette in support of his future professional pursuits. Clarence was a member of two of my courses at New York University and was among the finest students in these classes. I am a longstanding professor at the university, and my courses are rigorous and demanding, requiring students to read, conduct research and write extensively in addition to work in cooperative projects, preparing in-class panels and oral presentations. Clarence’s participation was outstanding; in fact, he succeeded in every academic challenge thrown his way earning top grades in both courses. In evaluating Clarence’s potential to succeed in his future endeavors, I see a determined student who possesses excellent communication skills; someone who is a clear thinker, a fine writer; an articulate, reasonable voice in the classroom, and a self-motivated individual who is open to new ideas and perspectives. His resume does not fully credit his multi-talents as a musician, writer and as an active person in the world. In his years at NYU, Clarence has worked in publishing as an editorial assistant, and the NYU art gallery. His political consciousness is also evident in his voluntary work tutoring ex-offenders seeking their high school diplomas. In my conversations with him, I see a person who has clear career objectives and, significantly, a humanistic perspective that will hold him in good stead as he moves into the professional world. It is worth noting as well, that Clarence is, simply, a fine person, good humored, and generous with his friends and fellow students. So, it is with my highest regard for Clarence’s academic integrity, talent and personal character that I urge you to consider him for any opportunities available at your organization in the future. Please feel free to get in contact with me if I can provide additional information about Clarence. Sincerely, Paul Thaler, Ph.D. Gallatin School for Individualized Studies New York University pthaler@aol.com 718.543.3517
