Could you explain why you were late?

I am really sorry. I was late. The reasons why I was late is that I left the school bus. Yesterday, I went to bed on 1:00 o'clock, so I could not get up on the 7:00 o'clock. I got up 9:30.I will take care in the future. I will never be late again.

自然な表現

I am really sorry. I was late. The reason why I was late is that I missed the school bus. Yesterday, I went to bed at 1:00 o'clock, so I could not get up at _ 7:00 o'clock. I got up at 9:30. I will make sure I am never late again.

1. this is actually one reason, so use the singular noun form
2. to leave a bus means to be on it and then get off; we naturally say we miss the bus if we never get on it
3. 4. 6. use AT for exact or particular time
5. we don't use articles before exact or particular time expressed in hours/minutes
7. please hit 'space' after punctuation marks; I've corrected this throughout the text, but I haven't underlined it to avoid cluttering
8. your expression was fine, this is a different expression that you can also use in this context
I understand why it happened, but it doesn't change the fact that you are late. Tardiness is unacceptable, you know?

I am sorry. I never stay up late at night because it is the biggest reason why I am late.

自然な表現

I am sorry. I always go to bed early to avoid oversleeping.

1. your expression was fine, this is a different expression that you can also use in this context
Good thing you know what needs to be done. Have you completed your homework? Could you submit it now?

I have already finished homework. I can submit you it now, but I couldn't understand few questions, so I couldn't answer these. Could you teach me after the class?

2. we naturally use 'a few' to mean several or some; 'few' means not enough, barely any
3. your expression was fine, this is a different expression that you can also use in this context
That means you haven't finished it. All right. You have to stay after class, so it could be explained to you. But don't you have a study group?

No, I don't. I usually study at my home, so I usually study by myself. I think that it is the beast studying way for me because I can concentrate to study. Sometimes, I ask my mother or my father, when I have a question. However, they could not answer the my questions in this time.
