Ms. Yanxin Liu

 Dear parents and students:


I am Yanxin Liu, you could call me Ms. Liú or Liú Lǎoshi. I am from Shanxi Province in China. I received my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language and Second Language Acquisition at Beijing Language and Culture University in Beijing, China. During my college years, I had internship and part time jobs as a Mandarin teacher and tutor in Beijing. From 2011 to 2016, I taught Mandarin to K-12 students in Arkansas for five years. I had many students from all over the world. From 2017 to 2020, I taught Mandarin immersion to 7th and 8th grades students at Gavilan Peak School. I love teaching Chinese language and culture to my students. I have been married for six years. We have a super cute boy who is almost five years old. I love swimming, reading, watching movies, doing all kinds of arts and crafts, and being with my son. Looking forward to a WONDERFUL year with you!
