  1. I am your math teacher this week / month / year.
  2. I will be your math teacher this week / month / year.
  3. I have been your math teacher this week / month / year.

While the first sentence can be uttered at any time of this week / month / year, what about the second and third?

I feel that the second can be only said at the first day or first class of this week / month / year. The 3rd sentence can be said after the middle of this week / month / year.

  • The second works until teaching has started. The third starts working near the end of the time period.

  • @gotube Thank you. It seems words after "be" have a influence on the acceptability. Do you think " I have been busy this year" works in, for example, March?
