    I hope to see my mom for a longer length/ period of time.

    1) I hope to see my mom for a longer length/ period of time.

    2) I hope I can lengthen the length of summer season.

    3) I would like to seek your service in helping me to paint and clean my house. If your services are good, then I will seek your service for a longer length of time/duration next time.

    4) If the teacher is good, I will see her for a longer session.


    * Can I use the highligted words in the above sentences? Are these sentences written correctly? Please advise.

This is too wordy. 'I would like you to help me to paint and clean my house. If I am satisfied, you can help me for longer next time.'

    4) If the teacher is good, I will see her for a longer session. OK.
