    Is this sentence written correctly?

    **I'm not a teacher**

    -> Help, guidance and the structure to teach and enlighten large groups of students, with Dexway, we give you answers regardless of the situation.

    Re: Is this sentence written correctly?

    I don't understand this sentence. What is this part:
    Help, guidance and the structure to teach and enlighten large groups of students, with Dexway,
    supposed to mean? What's its function in this sentence?

    I think I understand this:
    we give you answers regardless of the situation.

    But I don't see the connection between the two.

    Yes, I agree with mmasny: I'm sorry, but the sentence is incomprehensible.

    Just be straightforward: Dexway gives you the guidance you need to enlighten large groups of students. (If that's what you mean.)
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    '[I]ncomprehensible' is unnecessrily gentle, I think. It's just not a sentence.

    I agree, it's an appalling sentence.
    I guess it is supposed to mean something like:

    [Help], [guidance] and [the structure to teach and enlighten large groups of students]
    Dexway can give you answers to problems you have with the above things, and everything else.
    or perhaps:
    ... with the above things in any situation.

    Or perhaps they're not sure what they want to say? It's ad(vertisement)speak. Maybe you aren't meant to parse the sentence grammatically but just appreciate the holistic message - Dexway can solve your problems.
