I generally get letters of recommendation out within a week, unless you tell me you need it sooner.
To ask for a letter of recommendation, please include the following information in your email to me:

1) What is the name that you went by when you took my class?
2) In what school was the class?
3) What semester did you take my class?
4) What was your grade?
5) What career or program are you trying for?
6) If you have one, attach a resume or just tell me in the email about any patient contact you have had or anything else you wish me to know.
7) Check with each program you are applying to, and ask them how they want the letters submitted.
8) Most programs send me a link that takes me to a form to fill out and attach a letter.
    If that is the case, they will want you to give them my address and phone number before they send me the link.
    Just use the school's address and phone number. Use this for my email address:

National University

3390 Harbor Blvd, Costa Mesa, CA 92626



Coastline Community College

11460 Warner Ave, Fountain Valley, CA 92708



Mt San Antonio College

1100 N. Grand Ave, Walnut, CA 91789



Saddleback College

28000 Marguerite Parkway, Mission Viejo, CA 92692


9) If the program wants you to download a form for me to fill out, you will need to download the form and fill out the waiver on the top part of the first page and sign it. Then you scan it and email it to me. I will fill it out at home and I can give it back to you the next week if we are still on campus together. If you want me to mail it to you instead, please provide a 6" x 9" clasp envelope (picture below) and enough postage to get it to you.

10) If you need it to be directly mailed from me to the school, please send me an addressed (to the school), stamped envelope. I have 500 students a year now, so 500 postage stamps a year adds up to a lot of money! You can send it to any school where I am working that semester...ask me first....put my name and the Department on it and it will go to my school mailbox, where I will get it the next time I am at that school (let me know you are sending it there so I know to look for it). If I will not be at that campus soon enough, let me know and I will give you my home address.
