I could have done my homework, because I had the time

‘Seen and Saw’

Saw is the past tense form of ‘see’.  Saw can be used by itself, without a helping verb.

You saw me.  I saw that film. 

Seen is the past participle form of ‘see’.  Seen requires a helper verb, such as ‘have’.

I have seen that film. A fox was seen in the park yesterday. 

It is never correct to use ‘seen’ without a helper verb.

I seen you. – Incorrect X
