Discussion about this grammar

Hello! I have been teaching Japanese to American high school students for some time, and while I am comfortable with my knowledge of grammar, this keeps bugging me: is there any reason to prefer で to に?I was trained in college to use で、but in the (many) years since, I see and hear these used interchangeably, and it makes sense with the use of the particle に for time/occasion. My students sometimes ask about this one...おいします!

A simple way to look at it is that to use 「に」, a word or phrase must precede it. Consider these examples: メールする。   (NOT にメールする) I will email you later. したメールする。 I will email you after I've done the work. Here is its use with a noun: そうすけのつづいてあるく。 I will follow after Sousuke. Remember that the particle 「に」 can have the effect of narrowing the time window of a occurrence to a specific point, such as the difference between 「~とき」 and 「ときに」. It works similarly with 「」 - when you use 「に」, you aren't referring to a general time frame of "sometime later," but rather to a precise moment in time. That's why you can say: 「またやる。」 I'll do it again later. but not: 「またやる。」 incorrect particle This statement isn't specifying a particular time to do it, just a broad time frame of "later." Therefore, 「で」 is used rather than 「に」。

Is the の particle dropped only when the preceeding verb is in the casual-past tense? For example, would it be wrong to say: ごはんをたべるく。

When a verb is used, the casual past tense is required, so you would not be able to say たべる.

hello everyone! I was wondering: Can I replace で with に without changing the meaning? Thanks in advance! :)

Not with あと. You will sometimes see のちに, which is another reading of the same kanji, or ごに (in compounds, after nouns, e.g. に), but it's best just to memorize あとで and まえに as sets.
