Writing Emails in College

How to write a email to your professor in an online class?

Being respectful, kind, and compassionate towards your professor when in an online environment is essential to your success in the class. (Talk about online etiquette!)

Even when they do not treat you with the same respect, doing so demonstrates maturity and a strong character.

Here is the simplest way to write emails to your professor when in an online course:

1. Dear Mr, Ms, Mrs, Dr, ________,

Start with the correct title of the professor.

It may earn you some extra points with the teacher.

2. Good Morning, Afternoon, Evening

Include the time of day.

When you see your friends you greet them with a “hello” or “hi”.

In a professional email, you can say “good morning”, “good afternoon”, or “good evening”.

3. Body of email

Concision, concision. Keep your sentences short and easy to understand.

Proofread the email 2-3 times in order to correct your spelling and grammar.

4. End with a thank you and a greeting

The last sentence should be a “thank you” of some sort. You may say “I appreciate your help” or “thank you for your time” or simply “thank you”.

Your trademark greeting should be your own.

Some teachers of mine have ended with “have fun” or “best” signed by their name.

Conclusion

The easy-as-cake way to write emails to your professor!:

1. Dear Mr, Ms, Mrs, Dr, ________,

2. Good Morning, Afternoon, Evening

3. Body of email (be concise, proofread 2-3 times, check for grammar and spelling, and be respectful even if they aren’t!)


4. End with a thank you and a greeting
