    Do you have a teacher? What does your teacher say?
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.

    Thanks for correcting my question.

    I do not have a teacher. I am trying to help a child who has the questions for me. Would you like to give an answer?

    Or else how can I prove I am not a student? What about browsing my previous threads where I once mentioned I have a daugther?
