    One thing they have in common is that you can find them all on google!

    You can find anything on google if you tried hard enough. But asking friends and intereacting with other people in your quest to be a good English teacher is so much more rewarding.

    and not only that, but most of these questions are things we have a very high chance of coming across ourselves. posting a question not only helps you, but gives other people in similar positions a heads-up, right? "if you're like me you probably haven't ever thought about this grammar, but let's puzzle through it together."

    seems (to be) ..... when and why you can do without the 'to be'

    example
    he seems to be sick
    he seems sick

    he seems to be a good teacher
    he seems a good teacher

    I'd say "seems to be" is when you can't see him right there, or it's second hand info... I'm not sure though.
