I need to write five sentences on the role of education in successful financial planning, in which you correctly use a different verb tense in each sentence. I also have to mark each verb used in bold and, in parentheses, identify the specific tense used. I have the five sentences, but I am not sure if it is correct. here are the sentences that I have chosen. (1)The role of education PLAYS a major part in financial planning. (present tense) (2)LEARNING the basic math skill will help you better your finances. (future) (3)when you CONTINUE your education you will be able to get a better job.(present progressive)(4)Education PLAYS a very big role in a person's financial outcome.(present tense)(5)LEARNING new skills is an important role in a person's financial status.(future progressive)I would like to know if I am on the right track and if these are right.

LEARNING is a gerund or present participle; it is NOT a tense by itself. If you truly want future = You will learn
3) Present Progressive = When you are continuing
5) check #2 please. Future Progressive = You will be learning...
