Present simple tense
We mostly use the base form of the verb to make the present simple affirmative.
I work in San Francisco. You eat too much chocolate. We get up early. They live in an old house.
In the third person singular (he, she, it) we add -s to the base form.
Peter plays tennis. My sister tries to change her job. Our son goes to primary school.
We use do or does to make questions in the present simple.
Do you know Greg? Does he go to the same school?
Negative questions normally express a surprise.
Does he not work? Doesn't he work?
If the wh- pronoun introducing the question (who, which) is the subject of the question, we do not use the auxiliary verb do.
Who knows you? Which cars belong to you?
The negative forms are made with do not (don't) or does not (doesn't).
I do not (don't) know. Marion does not (doesn't) want to study.
The verb to be has completely different forms:
I am, you are, he/she/it is, we are, they are.
We add not after the verb to be to make negatives.
I am not, you are not, it is not.
Questions are made in a simple way. We just change the word order of a statement.
Am I? Are you? Is he?
In spoken English, however, we normally use short forms.
