Recommendation Letters Guide for Teacher

Hi, I'm a 12 grader international student and I'm looking for advice on how and what should my teacher write in my recommendation letter?

My teacher has no experience on writing recommendation letters for students studying outside of my country, so any points of what should I tell my teacher to write about me would be very very helpful!

Thanks! [:

Ask him to describe your unique personality, how good of a student you are, and how you have a good work ethic. Make sure that he doesn't just write that you get good grades and make it to class on time. He needs to write in a way that will stand out to the colleges you are applying to. Good luck, hope this helps!
