Dear [Recipients Name],

I have finished going through the evaluation forms submitted by the students a couple of months ago. I want you to know that I am concerned about how the majority of them think about you.

Several students have complained that you appear to be unenthusiastic when giving your lecture. Many of them also feel that they did not learn much from you.

I should not be reminding you, but it is your duty to be prepared for class at all times. The students also do their part in making sure they show up to class. I expect you to give them what they deserve?meaningful lessons.

I would like to discuss this issue further with you. Please visit my office before this week concludes.
