Maeve Nolan

Early Years Tutor


Maeve Nolan has worked in Portobello for almost twenty years with experience in managing her own Montessori school for fifteen years. She completed her BA in Montessori Education and in European Studies with a MA in International Politics. Through her experience in working in Germany as an expert in Research and Policy Analysis on Education and Training, Maeve has become skilled in time management and in prioritisation, key skills that have aided her career as a tutor.




For Maeve, the most rewarding aspect of being a tutor is watching students succeed in their studies and onwards in their career. She is always delighted to her from her past students who have landed in the jobs they’ve trained for or from those who have opened their own facilities.




During her time in Portobello, Maeve has had the opportunity to participate and grow within different sectors of the organisation, and overall, she has had a rewarding journey.
