There are four basic common skills of language that should be mastered by students in learning English: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. All these language skills are related to each other so the students must be trained adequately in all the four basic skills to make them easily practice and use the language. As the one of English important skills, writing becomes the most difficult skill experienced by Junior High School students because it has close relationship with English grammar and structure. In writing, when the students, even, want to make a simple sentence, they need to know the rules how to make it correct grammatically and structurally. To be a good writer or at least to be able to make an acceptable sentence based on the rules, the students have to master grammar since it is the basic rule of language. In this case, verb tenses have an essential role, because they tell readers when actions are taking place. Careful and accurate use of tenses is important to clear writing. For instance, if the verbs in a passage refer to actions occurring at present actions, the present tense is definitely needed to be used. This research aims to find out the correlation between the students’ mastery of present tense and their writing ability at the eighth grade students of MTs.
