Sample Children's Tutor Cover Letter

A children's tutor cover letter can be just the document you need to catch the attention of a parent looking for a qualified individual to care for their children in their private home, overseeing the young peoples' recreation, diet, health, and conduct. Such an individual, if qualified, may also assist with aspects of the children's education and training. It's important to mention all of these elements in all children's tutor cover letters.

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Barton:

With this cover letter I am applying for the position of children's tutor, which I saw listed on JobBankUSA.com. It would be my pleasure to care for your son and daughter in your home, overseeing their recreation, diet, health, and conduct. I am also qualified to assist with aspects of their education and training, if this something you'd like. I had a teaching credential and at one time was a full-time elementary school teacher, with experience in grades three to six. I am currently retired from the classroom, but have the ability to tutor basic subjects and to oversee homework assignments and special curriculum-related projects.

If you'd like to meet me to talk over what I could bring to this work, I'll be happy to accommodate your schedule. Please phone me at 695-888-8756 and give me a time and date that works for you. I look forward to meeting you and your children.

I know that truly fine people are sought for such work. It is not common to find really good children's tutors so I thank you for considering me. My resume with a list of previous employers is enclosed for your study. I hope to hear from you soon.
