Tenses form the foundation of the English language. By employing the appropriate tenses, we communicate our feeling/intention appropriately. However, English tense is problematic for most EFL learners, even for upper-level students and for English teachers whose native language is tefifless. Non-native English speaker teachers as role models for English learners have an important role to succeed in the teaching and learning of English tenses. One way to know their English tense competence is by examining their unpublffid scientific writing because academic writing demands a good feel of tense. This research is descriptive and qualitative. The data of this research are unpublished research article introductions written by non-native English speaker teachers who were studying at the Graduate Program of English Education at Semarang State University, aiming at developing their quality. This study employed genre analysis. The research results revealed that most participants do not produce complete rhetorical stages. The most problematic rhetorical stage is the move "indicating a gap’. The tense choice and tense shift in clause complexes are also problematic for them. It is recommended that they do more writing practice to develop their tense-sense level to feel the rhetorical concept in producing a piece of writing.
