Answering Ariel's question, normally we use the structure with "want" and "need" such as:
(Subject) want(s) + (somebody) to V (inf.)
prepare: The teacher wants us to prepare for the test next week.
pick up: John wants his brother to pick him up after school.
issue: We want the store to issue us a refund.
cut: He wants Mary to cut his hair.
teach: They want me to teach them how to bake bread.
come: I want him to come here.
help: Do you want me to help you with the dishes?
But other verbs that can be used in this pattern instead of “want”:
V + (somebody) to V (inf.)
advise: The professor advised Tom to take three semesters of physics.
ask: We are asking them to switch their appointment to Thursday.
expect: I expect my students to study diligently and work hard.
persuade: Mrs. Jones persuaded her sick husband to stay home from work.
teach: My brother taught me to whistle.
However, the usage above is really less common than the pair want/need.
