Write-ups on Exams, Job Interviews, Business English, Learn English Abroad, and More...
You missed a couple of important lectures due to illness. Write a letter to the Professor requesting an out-of-hours (i.e. between classes) appointment to get the lowdown on the topics and address your doubts. (About 150 words)
The letter should state:
You have been pretty consistent in terms of attendance;
You will come prepared with your own reading on the subject;
You cannot move ahead without help.
Begin your letter as follows:
I am writing to you with a request for an out-of-hours appointment to compensate for missing out on a couple of your important lectures.
I have attended all college lectures with due diligence during the entire session so far, but I could not attend the last two lectures because I had been off college on sick leave for a few days. I returned yesterday. My classmates have been giving me the lowdown on all the classes that I have missed, and I am trying to catch up on them.
However, there are some lectures for which I need support from the respective professors, and you are one of them. Please spare some time for me to have a session with you so that I can understand the topic better and allay my doubts. I am stuck on certain areas of the subject and cannot seem to manage on my own. I assure you that I will come prepared with my understanding and will complete all the assignments soon after the meeting.
Thank you in advance for the consideration.
