Hi Maria,

I hope you're well.

I'm just writing to say thanks for your help on the project last month. We really appreciate you stepping in to support us. I know you had to put in extra hours to catch up on your own work, so thank you very much.  

Your expertise was vital for this project and we couldn't have finished it successfully without you. You really helped us and we hope to work with you again on future projects.

I'll be in touch again soon about possible future collaborations. I look forward to working with you more closely this year.

All the best,



  1. Start with a friendly comment:
    I hope you're well.
  2. It's usually best to use an informal style with colleagues:
    Hi Maria, …
    Thanks for your help.
  3. Keep it short.
  4. Mention the good work they did and the positive effect of it:
    Your expertise was vital for this project.
    We couldn't have finished it successfully without your help.
  5. End with a positive comment about future collaboration:
    I hope to work with you more closely in future.
    I look forward to working with you again.

Hi Alex,
I hope you are doing well.
I’m just writing to say thanks for your great help on the exam yesterday. I had been so busy playing games with my cousin, that’s why I didn’t have any leisure time for studying. If you hadn’t helped me that time, I would not have passed the exam. I know you didn’t answer the last question in order to teach me the solution of each question.
I very appreciate your assistance. If you need any help in the future, I will always be pleased to lend you a hand.
Your best friend,
