    Default I will teach you .........

    Hello suppose that I sometimes teach my girlfriend some English but because of my university exams I can't do it.

    Jennifer: "Why don't you teach me English any more?"
    Alex: "Oh, so sorry honey I'm very busy studying my lessons. Tomorrow my exams will be finished."
    Alex:
    1. I will teach you from tomorrow.
    2. I will teach you since tomorrow.
    3. I will continue teaching you from tomorrow.
    4. I will continue teaching you since tomorrow.
    5. I will keep teaching you from tomorrow.
    6. I will keep teaching you since tomorrow.
    7. I will began to teach you from tomorrow.
    8. I will start to teach you from tomorrow.

    I am confused. I don't know how to say it. Would you please be kind enough to help me on that?

    Thank you very much

    Those with 'since' don't work.
    Those with 'keep don't work.
    You should be able to spot the mistake in #7.

    Many thanks 5jj. Yes I have used past form. It's my mistake.
    Then I will choose these:

    1. I will teach you from tomorrow.
    3. I will continue teaching you from tomorrow.
    7. I will begin to teach you from tomorrow.
    8. I will start to teach you from tomorrow.

    Just one more thing. In number 3 after the word "continue" we should use infinitive or gerund? I mean "to teach" or "teaching"? Or both are correct?
