I am gratified to recommendone of my most exceptional students, Vaibhav Anand, whom I have known for pastfour years. In the eleventh-grade and twelfth-grade, I have taught him Physics,which included topics: Mechanics, Thermodynamics, electricity, magnetism,optics, and semiconductors. I have also been his class teacher ineleventh-grade. This interaction with him has provided me satisfactoryinformation to gauge his innate intellectual and analytical capability, rankinghim in the top ten percent of the students, I have taught in my teachingexperience of past ten years. Vaibhav is driven to tackle his scientificresearch dilemmas with a more practical and hands-on approach rather thantheoretical pen-paper approach.
He loves inventing operational scientificmodels. His final project in grade twelfth was especially impressive, aninvestigation and construction of Tesla coils by him, a concept that intriguedhim: wireless energy transfer. His ability to work with his colleagues wasexemplary, with his pleasing manners, proficiency in communicating his ideaseffectively. Throughout high school, Vaibhav had successfully been able tocarry out all his physics lab experiments along with being able to demonstrateit with clarity to his colleagues. He had established an excellent affinitywith his classmates and the faculty. He was very interactive in the class andendorsed the discussion cogency. Also, he had been a versatile member ofElectronics Club, in grade twelfth, eager to share his ideas and knowledge withhis classmates and learn new skills. Seeing his wild participation in suchevents also gave his peers a lift in innovating and working as one singleforce.
I have had the students in the club develop scientific models and taketurns leading our after-school meetings. When it was Vaibhav’s opportunity, heshowed up prepared with a captivating lecture about electromagnetic inductionand practical experiments that kept everybody moving; I could still recountthat day, he was our only student lecturer to meet with much deserved kudos atthe end of his lecture. Not only is Vaibhav anambitious student, but he also displays a remarkable strength of character.When speaking to any of his teachers about Vaibhav, the first word that comesup is “maturity.” He was a sincere and compassionate student committedto upholding these codes in our school society. Though, due to the suddendemise of his father amidst final twelfth-grade exams, Vaibhav had undergoneprofound emotional distress, which had negatively influenced his grades. Ihonestly believe that his final twelfth grades do not reflect his true academicstrength.
Also, during all these disturbing events he had been taking care ofhis younger brother; this speaks a lot about his character and the maturity heshows at a very young age. Taking into consideration hismotivation, determination, and intelligence, I strongly believe that he willscale the highest peaks in his fields of interest. As an innovative, mature,and action-oriented student, Vaibhav would thrive in your environment, where hecould explore his passion for science and build a rigorous curriculum thatwould match his aspirations.
Given all the above facts, I enthusiasticallyrecommend him for admission into your undergraduate program.
