    Re: TIME

    I am working (at the moment; now) Present Continuous

    I have worked (used to show unspecified time before now) Present Perfect

    I have been working (you still work) Present Perfect Continuous

    I worked - (the action totally ended) Simple Past

    I did work (did is used here for emphasis)
