Tengteng earned his Master’s degree in TESOL at the University of Liverpool (UK) in 2011. Before joining the PhD program at Concordia University and this lab, he had a career as an ESL/EFL tutor for a decade. His experiences of being a language tutor and later an owner of a test-prep business in Shanghai (China) bring his research curiosities into language assessment and evaluation, second language teaching, and integrated speaking assessment. When he is not researching, Tengteng enjoys spending time on weight training, skydiving, and Nintendo Switch.
