Webdriver extends helperclass to assert

Hello, if this is a wrong section in the forum I apologize.
I am learning java and in the mean time learning about selenium webdriver, so bear with me.
I am playing with selenium webdriver to see if I can use it to test simple web browser.
However, I ran into a problem when I try to build a sample class that extends to super class to help me simplify things.
For example, verifying element present.

here is part of my subclass that actually runs the test.

So verifyLink method doesn't work correctly and always shows test passed.
So I know this way is making me use the driver in superclass and my subclass won't even throw an error when the test runs.
I want to make it so my subclass inherits the methods that I need, and use my own Webdriver object that is from subclass to make the test fail, when it should.
Can someone guide me to the correct design of creating a helper class.

Thanks in advance.
I agree. Here's the link:
