How are you doing today? This is Gregory Broomfield. I saw your contact at the University of New Hampshire, College of Life Sciences and Agriculture under Directory's portal. I seek for a private tutor for my Daughter. I would like to know if you would be available for the job and I would provide you with more details of my daughter.

The lessons could hold at the campus/library or your home, if you staying close to campus. 

If you would not be able to teach her owing to your busy schedule, you can recommend one of your students or colleague who is capable of teaching.

Looking forward reading from you.

Best regards,
