    Clause going after recommend

    Could you please tell me more about clause going after Verb "Recommend". For Example in this structure:
    S(1) + recommend + that S(2) + Verb +....
    if S(2) is the third person (singular), if we must add -s after Verb or not?
    Example:
    His English teacher recommends that he begin(s) a regular degree program.
