    Proper English

    Are my sentences proper English?

    I noticed that the security man worked every day 2 shifts in the hospital and on the weekends he worked as a taxi driver.

    Grades don't indicate how a teacher has worked with students throughout a year, because students might hire a tutor or a teacher might work with students test common questions.
     
    Thank you so much to take the time and answer my questions.

    Re: Proper English

    Sorry, I'm confused.

    1) I mean a teacher teaches students questions that they would have in the exam.
    2) I thought the preposition for '' work" is ''on''. Work with students on test common questions.

    1) You could use "to test them on common exam questions" then.

    2) "Work on" is to practice. A teacher might have worked with a student [in order] to test the student on common exam questions. The words "in order" are omitted because they're not entirely necessary and that leave "worked with a student to test..."
