Until' and 'till' express 'up to that time'. We use either the simple present or simple past with 'until' and 'till'. 'Till' is usually only used in spoken English. 

- We waited until he finished his homework. 

- I'll wait till you finish. 

- - - - - - - - - - - - - 


We use until or till to indicate that something continues up to a particular point in time and then stops:

- Don't bother saving me any supper - I shan't be home till late. 
- We had to stay in the exam room until the end of the exam. We couldn't leave early even if we had finished. 
- I had no umbrella so waited until the downpour was over before I left the shop. 
- We don't need to be at the stadium until the first race is over so we don't need to leave home till eleven o' clock.
