Student or Learner
hi to everybody.
i met an unusual structure whitch i dont undrestand it.
"he having used it in variouse classes".
but Present Perfect Continuous structure is diffrent from my question,
plz tell me more.
I believe your question is about the meaning of having used. Essentially it is in a different tense. The above posters have noted specifically which tense.
If you are looking for meaning, try to change the sentence into a structure/tense you are more familiar with (becareful because there are differences in meaning when different tenses are introduced). For example, He used it in different classes.

I'm not a teacher!
I'm a little bit puzzled with the sentence "he having used it in variouse classes". I've not seen such a construction; I'd rather expect it to be like that: "Having used this method in various classes, he found it easy to explain it. As I understand, the use of the perfect participle "having used" needs the follow-up clause, e.g. " he found it easy...".
What is strange to me is the use of the past participle "having used" immediately after the subject "he".
