Dear “Full Name”,
While I have gotten your solicitation to compose a letter of recommendation, I am anxious about the possibility that that I will need to deferentially decline for several reasons and some of them you already know about.
We truly didn’t cooperate too a lot and I didn’t get the opportunity to see too quite a few your abilities outside of the arithmetic world that I instructed in. The position you’re applying for requires a lot of historical exploration and information and I have no clue in case you’re proficient in that field or not and hence wouldn’t be able to write much about your skills and talents.
While you were an incredible understudy more often than not, you were frequently late to class without a substantial reason and these traits in longer-term doesnt go well with someone who has a lot of responsibility. I would like you to work on your soft skills because for success not only hard skills or technical capabilities but soft skills play a major role.
I wish you the best throughout everyday life except I’m apprehensive I won’t have the option to assist you with this recommendation letter demand.
