To Whom It May Concern

I have known Mr. John Smith in various capacities for numerous years. He has been working as an instructor of my daughter for the previous three years. Besides, he is my associate in a small business where he is responsible for bookkeeping and other clerical tasks.

John is well thought-out, well-organized, very competent, and has an outstanding relationship with people of all ages. His communication skills, both written and spoken, are superb.

To cut a long story short, I highly recommend Mr. John Smith for any position or venture that he might seek to pursue. He will be a priceless asset for any organization. I wish him best of luck in his future endeavors.
