    Default Verb Tenses

    I want to use a verb in the following tenses:

    Verb: Draw

    Present Progressive: Tina is drawing a picture.
    Present Tense: Tina's favorite thing to do is draw.
    Past Tense: Last week, Tina entered a contest and drew a beautiful picture.
    Future Tense: Next Monday, Tina will draw a picture for me.

    My question is for the "present tense": Am I using the verb correctly as a present tense verb? Or since the sentence is in the 3rd person is "do" the verb and not "draw"? What would be a better way to use a verb in the present tense while also using the 3rd person? Thank you in advance for any and all help.

    You were right to doubt that one.

    She draws pictures of her friends in her notebook whenever she is bored in class.

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    So do all 3rd person present tense verbs need an "s" at the end?
