    Re: in the formal letter

    It isn't a sentence because it does not begin with a capital letter and end with appropriate punctuation.
    I am not a teacher.

    Re: in the formal letter

    Welcome to Using English.
    As stated above, please make sure you start every sentence with a capital letter and end every sentence with the correct end punctuation.

    I'd say "You were my supervisor for my MSc project at [name of the university]."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
