Find the laplace transform of;

t*u(t-1)

I always thought that the laplace transform of the function was;

(1/s^2) * (e^-s)

However, recently I was told that I was wrong!

I was told that I was wrong, because t*u(t-1) is not a function of (t-1). That in order to take the proper laplace transform of it, I needed it to turn it into a function of (t-1).

How can I do that? Can anyone help me find the proper laplace transform of my function, please?
