What you re going through is normal, especially if you re on your own at the job. The good news is that you realize there are ways in which you can improve. There are lots of websites that deal with ESL, and some (like proteacher) offer forums that allow you to post questions and ask for advice. I d suggest that you look into more interactive type activities and don t present like a grammar teacher. For example, for indrect speech you could have a warm up like: T: "Where do you work?" Student A: I work in an office in Chiba T: (to student B) "What did he say? I didn t hear him" Student B: "He said that he works in an office in Chiba" and so on. When you get to the writing part you can discuss why both the past and present tense are needed in the response.
