[Grammar] -아/어/여 주다 do something for someone

-아/어/여 주다

‘주다’ means ‘to give’, however if you use this with a verb it means ‘do something for someone‘.  The conjugation is

verb(ends with 아 or 오 vowel) + 아 주다
verb(ends with other than 아 or 오 vowel) + 어 주다
verb(ends with 하) + 여 주다

For example,

돌보다 : to take care => 돌봐 주다
싸다 : to pack => 싸 주다
들다 : to carry => 들어 주다
알리다 : to inform => 알려 주다
설명하다 : to explain => 설명해 주다

You can add tenses or other verb ending, for example,

present tense 돌봐 줘요 요즘 제가 매일 조카를 돌봐 줘요. I am taking care of my niece everyday recently.
past tense 돌봐 줬어요 어제 옆집 아이를 돌봐 줬어요. I took care of the child next door yesterday.
future tense 돌봐 줄 거예요 내일 옆집 강아지를 돌봐 줄 거예요. I will take care of the dog next door tomorrow.
