This is an excellent response. The student has not only answered the question appropriately but also ensured logical flow of ideas. There are very few grammar mistakes. 

Dear John,

I received your letter last week regarding the issue you are facing at your workplace. I have been through the same situation last year, so I would like to share my experience with you which might help you.

I could can (1) very well understand how a person feels if his efforts are not acknowledged and credit for his work is given to someone else. It is quite difficult to work in such an environment. I faced a similar situation last year when my promotion was due but despite of (do not use any preposition with DESPITE.) all my efforts at work, I was not promoted. When I discussed the matter with my manager, she was not able to give any satisfactory response. Later, I came to know that one of my colleagues took all the credit for my work. I was not having did not have (your tense is not wrong. But, some tenses are more appropriate than others in a particular context.) any evidence to prove him wrong at that time, so I had to accept the situation.

1. COULD is the past form of CAN.

Now, I would suggest you to discuss everything with your manager in detail without any delay so that he can take appropriate action. Further, I would advise you to be cautious when you are working in a team. Do (Try writing something else instead of ‘DO’.) all the communications via emails (Also, use email for all official communications …..) so that you can keep a record of them.

I hope you will be able to resolve this problem soon. Feel free to contact me whenever required.

With regards

M
