“Teacher’s aid” is incorrect.
“Log in” is a phrasal verb meaning “connect to an electronic device, system, or app.” The preposition “to” is often used directly after the verb; “in” and “to” should be written as two separate words (e.g., “log in to the app to update privacy settings”).
“Log into” is sometimes used instead of “log in to,” but this is generally considered incorrect (as is “login to”).
People increasingly use “comprise” as a synonym of “compose.” However, this is normally still seen as a mistake, and we recommend avoiding it in your academic writing. “Comprise” traditionally means “to be made up of,” not “to make up.”
People increasingly use “comprise” as interchangeably with “compose,” meaning that they consider words like “compose,” “constitute,” and “form” to be synonymous with “comprise.” However, this is still normally regarded as an error, and we advise against using these words interchangeably in academic writing.

“Tune in” is a phrasal verb meaning “watch a TV show” or “listen to a radio show.” The preposition “to” often comes immediately after this phrase; “in” and “to” should be written as separate words when this happens (e.g., “Tune in to the final episode next week”).
“Tune into” is sometimes used instead of “tune in to,” but this is generally considered incorrect.
