Student or Learner
I'm having a little problem right now. I don't know how to politely ask my english teacher (he's a native speaker) whether he has already checked my essay. I'm thinking about something like: "Haven't you already, by accident chcked my essay?" What I'm not sure about is this by accident phrasal. I'm not sure if it can be used in this sentence or if it doesn't sound a little bit weird. Anyway how would you ask?
Thanks in advance.
I was wondering if by any chance you had finished checking my essay?
I was wondering if you had had a chance to finish checking my essay yet?
and can I use present simple instead of past simple.
