Dear Mr./Ms. LastName,

Please accept my application for the teaching assistant position advertised on Craig's List. I would like to continue to develop my teaching skills while creating a challenging and fun learning environment for students. The middle school age group is particularly appealing to me, because students are very impressionable, interested in learning, and open to new concepts.

I am very well qualified and would be an asset to the school because of my experience working as a teaching assistant for XYZ School. I have worked with both elementary and middle school teachers, as well as camp directors to develop curricula that meet the needs of students. I enjoy tutoring students and helping them build confidence in their ability to achieve, both academically and socially. In addition, I have artistic and computer skills that will be an asset when developing class projects.

I have attached my resume for your review. Thank you for considering my application. I would appreciate the opportunity to interview and look forward to hearing from you in the near future.

Sincerely,

Your Signature
