Dear Instructor Smith,

Please allow me to inform you of my personal situation. Unfortunately, family and work constraints have made it extremely difficult for me to complete my work. Additionally, I struggle by not having a computer at home or a library close by. I would appreciate you helping me in any way possible so I can still pass this class.

Thank you,

Lisa WIlliams
