Wouldn't this be present tense?
This question relates to:Spanish lesson "Using demonstrative adjectives to refer to time (present, past and future)"
Kwiziq language super star
We sometimes use the present tense to refer to future events, always using a time phrase that indicates the future. This is the case with this sentence:
"Esta tarde ayudo a mi madre en el jardín."
If you only say "Ayudo a mi madre en el jardín." there is no indication of future, but with "esta tarde" we know it is referring to a future time, "this afternoon".
I hope this helps.
(We've got a lesson about this usage coming up soon.)
