    correcting a reference letter

    hi this is a reference letter I would like to correct
    Saly is an extraordinary young woman. As her Advanced programming teacher, I have seen many examples of her talent and have long been impressed by her diligence and work ethic. I understand that Saly is applying to the Image Processing and Computer Vision program.I would like to recommend her for the program.

    Saly has demonstrated outstanding abilities to understand quickly new and complex concepts. Full of energy, she is a highly motivated and an engaged student, she is always on time and never misses a class, she loves to share knowledge with her class mates and never let a question pass by without asking it. Having her as a student has been a great pleasure for me as I could see her performance go better and better, and this is because she was able to take constructive feedback and use it for her advantage.
    To conclude, I would like to restate my strong recommendation for Saly. If you have any further questions regarding Saly's ability or this recommendation, please do not hesitate to contact me using the information on this letterhead.

    Welcome to the forum.

    See above. I have changed "Saly" to "Sally" throughout because "Saly" is not a name in English. However, if that really is the person's name, then of course you should spell it the way you did.

    You're welcome. Note that tedmc also corrected your letter. Also note that, in future, there is no need to write a post to say "Thank you" to anyone. There is a "Thank" button in the bottom left-hand corner of every response. Simply click on that to indicate your gratitude.

    Re: correcting a reference letter

    In American English, at least, we don't generally refer to someone who teaches at a college or university as a "teacher." If the writer teaches at a university, use "professor" or "instructor" instead.
