Free Cover Letters

The cover or application letter is an important tool in the job search process. The cover letter is the first page with the resume as the second. The purpose of combining the cover letter and resume is to spark the employer's interest and to be invited for an interview or informational meeting. To write an effective cover letter you need to take time to research and write an original letter. You should tailor each letter to be specific to each employer and reflect your knowledge of the employer's needs. Researching the organization and opportunity before you write will make this task much easier.

Mr. Mike Matters,

Any Town, MN 55555

Dear Mr. Matters:

With this cover letter I am applying for the position of children's tutor for your children's university. I found your position listed on

I have extensive experience working with children as an elementary teacher in Anytown, California. There I taught Math, English, and Social Studies. I created lesson plans, modifying them somewhat each year.

My degrees are in teaching and psychology. As an intern, I tutored at a local secondary school in the anytown projects. I oversaw tests test scores, classroom conduct and turned-in homework.
If you'd like to meet me to talk over what I could bring to this position, I'll be happy to accommodate your schedule. Please contact me anytime at or leave a message on my home phone at 555-555-5555 and give me a time and date that works for you. I look forward to meeting you and your children.
I know that truly fine people are sought for such work. It is not common to find really good children's tutors so I thank you for considering me. My resume with a list of previous employers is enclosed for your study. Please feel free to contact all of my references.

I hope to hear from you soon.
