    I Am Not Sure About This Sentence

    dear teahcer,
    My english course teacher, while explaining some points, said, "..........if you are describing any of your habbits.....".I am not sure whether she said this clause in a wrong or right way, especially the "any of your habbits" part. I want you to clarify it so that i could be sure about my teacher's ability.
    thank you

    Note, spelling: habits.

    The if-clause sounds correct. For example,

    So, if you're describing any of your habits, use the present tense, like this, "I get up at 7:00 a.m. on weekdays."

    It could also be expressed,

    If you're going to describe your habits, . . . .

    OR

    If you're describing any one of you habits, . . . .

    All the best,
