Dear [Recipients Name],



Good day! I am writing you to ask for a favor that I hope you will oblige in.

In less than two months I will be taking the Graduate Record Examination, with the hope to enter Lakewood University, where they have the best graduate school program for the course that I am interested in. The school places an extremely high emphasis on a student's success in the exam, which is why I feel extremely pressured to get an above average score on the GRE.

Seeing that you helped my older sibling pass his GRE and get into MIT's graduate program, you were the first person I thought of when considering who I could approach to assist me. I am not asking for too much time, I would just really appreciate any pointers you could give me and a few lessons on the mathematics and physics sections, which I feel are my weakest points.

I look forward to your response about this request that I have. I really hope that you will give me a positive reply. Thank you in advance.



Sincerely,

[Senders Name]
