Hi John,

Here is my answer to a similar question -

https://progress.lawlessfrench.com/questions/view/what-about-je-suis-assis

 

Please also note that it would be -

tu t'assieds

 

as s'asseoir is reflexive.

Let me know if it helps!

être assis -- to be seated, to sit

Further to Chris's post.

tu t'es assise suggests that the person doing the sitting down is a female, otherwise the conjugation would be tu t'es assis.
