Here are some general tips in cover letter writing followed by a relevant sample.
Optimization: Keep in mind while writing your cover letter that the employer must be able to read it in a glance. It might not be literally possible but you can optimize and highlight your personal value and offered competencies in a manner so as to convey the core in initial 5-7 seconds of manual scanning by the employer.
Enthusiasm: Enthusiastic cover letters tend to stand out. A cover letter with a dull and flat tone reflects similar traits in the candidate. Sound energetic and keen for the job.
Customization: A customized or tailored cover letter is one that has been drafted specifically keeping the job and hiring company in mind. Such a cover letter directly addresses the latent and vivid job demands of the employer. Make sure you apply with a customized cover letter.

Mr. Felix Huntington
King’s Institute of Arts And Sciences
87 Harley Street
Flint, MI 83223
Dear Mr. Huntington:
I read your job advertisement for an academic coach position with great interest and enclose my resume for your consideration.
In keeping with your requirements, I offer great expertise in:
• Utilization of research based strategies in instructional framework.
• Vocational guidance and career counseling.
• Collaboration with teachers and parents to enable facilitation of class instruction.
• Analyzing student data to assess and develop intervention plans for learning enhancement.
My fruitful work experience in capacity of academic counselor at the JP College has enabled me to build a sound reputation of handling difficult cases and implementing practical short and long term educational plans with consent of students and teachers. The strategies developed and applied by me have always led to academic improvement if not excellence. Having the conduction of many scholarship promotion and college admission procedural workshops to my credit my previous employer will also testify that my services have extensively contributed in retaining college admissions and reducing dropout rates.
I look forward to an opportunity of meeting with you to elaborate how my competencies could be beneficial to King’s Institute of Arts And Sciences. I shall be following up on coming Thursday. In case you need to talk to me earlier, feel free to call me. My digits are: (003) 444-5555.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
