Welcome to the forum!

"tener" is the infinitive form of the verb "to have".

"tengo" is the first person present tense indicative form of the verb "tener".

Here is a link to the page showing the conjugated forms of the verb "tener".


In English,

I have you have he, she it has

In Spanish

yo tengo - I have tú tienes - you have el, ella, (third person or you formal) tiene

Some of the videos on this site will explain verb conjugation much better.
