Tenzin Choephel was born and raised in Tibet and then subsequently traveled to India to receive further education. In total Tenzin spent ten years of his life as a Buddhist monk which gave him the opportunity to study the Buddhist philosophy deeply.
He received a BA in Buddhist studies from Drepung Loseling Monastery and a BA in Tibetan Studies from the College for Higher Tibetan studies. Tenzin's goal at present is to preserve the beautiful Tibetan Language by teaching the language to others.
Tenzin was a Tibetan History and Culture Teacher at the College for Higher Tibetan Sutdies and also spent two years designing and delivering the Tibetan Language class at Thosamling Institue in India. He has also composed a Tibetan Language book called the Manual of Authentic Tibetan which is what he uses as a basis for delivering his Tibetan Language classes at present.
At present he is currently studying for a Masters degree in Tibetan and Himalayan Studies at the University of Oxford.
