1. Use -ing after a preposition (for).
2. "Every day" (two words) is an adverb. It can go at the beginning or end of the sentence.
"Every day, I go for a walk" or "I go for a walk every day."
"Everyday" (one word) is an adjective and it goes before a noun.
3. You need "s" because it's one of many.
4. You need "a" or "an" with jobs.
5. Use present simple for routines, no -ing.
6. "Clear" = to empty or get rid of the rubbish. "Clean" is to remove dirt.
7. You need a preposition.
8. "Teacher of maths" isn't really wrong but "maths teacher" is more natural.
