Are you running? Did you run? She ran. Did you? Past, present and future tenses can be tricky, but Time4Writing can help!

You already know that a verb can show action or a state of being. But, did you know that verbs are the heart of a sentence? Every sentence must have one, and finding that verb is one of the most important steps in understanding the meaning of the sentence.

Verbs can change their form. They can change by point of view (I work, he works); they can change when they have a helper used with them (they look, they are looking); and they can change according to tense (present, past, future).

Time4Writing can teach you how to properly use verb tenses when writing. Sign up for Time4Writing’s high school mechanics course to make sure you have verb tenses covered, as well as many other technical areas of writing.
