Tutor cover letters are considered the best way to position yourself as a candidate.
First impressions are hard to change and you have only one chance to make a first impression.
If you are a first-timer, the impression you give in the first instance is more important than ever.
Never make the mistake of reinventing your resume and posing it as a cover letter.
A resume is what your past was; a cover letter focuses on the employer and the future so it requires more than a mere reconstruction of your resume.
Cover letters are not about candidates; they are about the company one is applying to and how much benefit a candidate can provide the company with.
If for instance, you are writing a cover letter for a tutor’s position (and you have no experience), you will need to do more than just write a few fancy words to impress the reader.
Concentrating on your tutoring skills when writing a cover letter will do the trick.

Dear Mr. Freeman:
I would like to apply for the elementary tutor position at Denver Public Schools. I graduated from Oregano College of Education five months ago and am eager to begin my career with the best school in the area.
The idea of tutoring has held much fascination for me ever since I indulged in a short teaching stint at Howard Elementary School last summer. There, I learned how to assist students in the development of appropriate study skills. I was also provided with chances that taught me collaborative learning methodologies that aid in planning and facilitating tutoring sessions.
As an individual with a keen love for education, I firmly believe that I have what it takes to develop and implement tutoring plans that best fit each individual student’s academic needs. I can work comfortably with people from diverse backgrounds and can exhibit patience and judgment, especially where the need for both is dire.
I would love the opportunity to share my range of skills in education with you for which I would like to set up a meeting with your office soon. If you are interested, please contact me at (000) 555-5555 whenever it is convenient for you.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
