      Robert Mateja (known by his friends as “Rob”) is a native-speaking English teacher from the United States.

 

      His hometown is Philadelphia, which is on the East Coast of the country, close to New York. The name is of Greek origin and means “City of Brotherly Love.” Among other things, it’s known for historical sites related to the 18th century revolution era, for an expansive fine arts museum, and for “health” foods such as soft pretzels and cheesesteaks. Philadelphia is also home to Italian- and Polish-Catholic cultures, from which Rob is descended.

 

      Rob graduated in 2009 from Saint Joseph’s University. He studied world history, which led directly to his interest in East Asian countries like China. He also worked extensively with the university’s performing arts company, acting and singing in productions ranging from the dramas of William Shakespeare to the musicals of Stephen Sondheim. His love of entertaining directly influences his teaching career choice and style.

 

      Before coming to China in 2016, Rob taught English at private academies in neighboring South Korea. Accordingly, he is a big fan of spicy kimchi, pork belly barbeque, karaoke rooms, mountaineering around Seoul, and Gangnam Styling. Rob also taught English at a university in Chile, South America, where he learned to speak a little Spanish, took Salsa dance lessons, and volunteered at a technology startup company. Other random jobs he has had since university include movie cinema manager and personal fitness trainer.

 

     In his free time, Rob enjoys lifting weights, swimming, yoga, playing old video games, listening to electronic and rock music, reading nonfiction, singing karaoke, and hiking through whatever mountains he can find. He’s also endeavoring to learn Mandarin Chinese, and welcomes any help the campus community can offer.
