Is this verb present or present participle?

Opa enjoys hearing her grandmother's stories of the past.

Here enjoys is a verb. enjoys-present tense.

My teacher told me that hearing also a verb. But hearing= what's the tense, present or present participle?

And can you tell some websites where I can find information about parts of speech and corrects my answers?
