I made up a game for them to play and made a mental note to keep extra activities on hand for when my class finishes earlier than expected.
Is this correct?
My supervising teacher informed me that I speak well in class.
My supervising teacher informed me that I spoke well in class.
Which on of this sentences are correct I think it is the second on.

    Your first sentence is correct.

    The second two sentences are also correct.

    In the first of the pair, the teacher is speaking in the present tense -- meaning that now you speak well in class. In the second of the pair, the teacher is speaking in the past tense, indicating that when he visited the class, you spoke well.

    Is this correct? It'd be better to say "in case my class..." rather than "when"

    My supervising teacher informed me that I speak well in class. This means that you speak well in class every time you speak.
    My supervising teacher informed me that I spoke well in class. This means that you spoke well in class once, probably in the class that just ended.

    Thank you
