    Please use correct English when posting. Start of sentences require a capital letter and all sentences should be ended with the correct grammar. Either a full-stop/period or question mark/exclamation mark.

    'He is creating problems for us' is correct.
    I'm not a teacher yet, but I am studying a Bachelor of Education with an English Literature major at Charles Sturt University, in NSW, Australia.

    It's often impossible to say why we use certain prepositions- we just follow patterns everyone else uses.
