Anna Rama, I would suggest you to read a bit on the different english tenses(which is much more simple than what you could have with french verb tenses :? )
Basically, you have:
Simple tenses
- present
- past
- future
Progressive tenses
- present perfect
- past perfect
- future perfect (not very often tested but good to know that it exists)

The above 5 tenses, especially present&past perfect tenses, are crucial for you to know so that you can apply them to different question types. Read on about those 5 tenses at this site:

In studying those verb tenses, I would also suggest you to meticulously read about the subjunctive mood if you haven't already. It will explain a bit about "peculiar" ways of conjugating certain verbs.
