With one exception, you corrections are fine.
Your reasons for each one, however, are not correct -- not any of them.

2. You're right to change wants to want. However, it is not a run-on sentence. It's a complex sentence with an independent and a dependent clause.
3. I don't see any verb tense error. You're right to break this run-on into separate sentences.
4. Your correction is right, but it's a verb tense problem, not a subject-verb agreement problem.

In addition to what Ms. Sue has told you, there should NOT be a semicolon in #2. How will you fix that?
