Matthew Mayer (GBR)



In the year prior to studying Social and Political Studies at Sheffield University, Matthew worked as a care assistant supporting young people with epilepsy and autism.



He continued to work part-time during his studies, and again full-time for a further two years once he had finished. He decided to move to the Czech Republic in January 2009 when he was afforded the opportunity to live in a different country and teach English at Monty School in Ostrava. After a year and a half of preschool teaching, he spent a further twelve years as a teacher of English at Monty School. He has also worked part-time as an artist in both the United Kingdom and the Czech Republic. Since September 2022 he teaches English and Workshop classes at PORG Ostrava. In his spare time Matthew enjoys painting, running, cycling, and writing and illustrating stories for children. He is also an avid Liverpool FC fan.
