    Please help me.

    Sorry, Can you please help me cause sometimes is difficult for me to make the difference of the similar meaning of some words.

    - I am sorry (interfere, bother, intrude) you when you're studying but can you help me with my essay?


    - Many students (have, has, are having) part time jobs in the summer?

    - Could you (borrow, lend) me your notes?

    - When Laura got a part time job, she stopped (study, studying, studies, to study) ?

    - She used to study English, with a private tutor every day but he (was moving back, has moved back, moves back, moved back) to England last month?

    - We were in the office for at least 15 min waiting ( for the professor, the professor to, for the professor to) arrive.

    (Which one is correct to use)

    Look up "interfere", "bother" and "intrude" in the dictionary and see which one is the best answer.

    This is a general fact, and for that we use the present simple.

    Again, check the dictionary.
    Lend = give.
    Borrow = take.

    This is about a simple event (move) which finished in the past (last month), so you need the past simple here.
