Hello, I am doing grammar and I was wondering if you could correct my homework. Thanks.

In each of the following sentences, identify each italicized phrase as prepositional, participial, gerund, infinitive, or appositive.

1. Now I would like to tell you about my sister Alexandra.
- to tell you about my sister Alexandra = infinitive

2. She likes arriving at school early.
- arriving at school early = participial

3. By doing so, she can spend extra time preparing for her day.
- doing so = gerund

4. She will resort to anything to get to school early, including waking me up, too.
- to school = prepositional

5. For example, when the beeping of my alarm woke me yesterday, the sky was as dark as night.
- the beeping of my alarm = gerund

6. I soon realized that Alexandra, a volunteer crossing guard at school, had adjusted the alarm.
- a volunteer crossing guard at school = appositive

7. I was, I could see, an occasion for applying my special technique.
- applying my special technique = gerund

8. Called my slow-motion technique, it always achieves the result I want.
- Called my slow-motion technique = participial

9. I moved around the house as if I were underwater; Alexandra watched until she could stand it no longer.
- around the house = prepositional

10. Then, I moved faster; I certainly did not want to be late for school.
- to be late for school = infinitive
