    My past achievements include(d) A and B

    Hi,


    Qesution:
    Are my ways to summary my past achievements in 1 sentence correct?


    Past achievements:
    A:
    I improved the understanding of my students.
    B: Most student passed their exams



    Sentence1:
    My past achievements included improved the understanding of my students and all student passed their exams.
    Sentence2:
    My achievements included improving the understanding of my students and all student passing their exams.






    My opinions:
    The main point how to write achievement A and B into nouns.
    I think sentence 2 is better because I write 2 achievement into nouns.
    However, I am describing the acheivement in the past, not now. So sentence 1 seems to be more grammatically correct.



    Thanks

    Re: My past achievements include(d) A and B

    My past achievements include improving the understanding of my students and having all students pass their exams.

    But if your actual achievement is: "B: Most student passed their exams" and you write "all student passed their exams", then you are lying.
