Hi, I’m Dermot Nolan and I have been a teacher of mathematics in the UK for over thirty years. I have taught in many different schools in that time and held various roles including Head of Department and KS5 Leader in an International Academy which offered the International Baccalaureate as well as the traditional A Levels. My teaching experience includes the whole age and ability range in UK secondary schools (age 11 to 19).
Over the years I have seen many changes in curriculum, teaching approaches and strategies and I have worked with, and learned from, many talented colleagues and students In addition to delivering the normal school curriculum, I also spent a few years as a Kumon instructor (Kumon is a Japanese programme for developing core skills).
I have a proud record of success in supporting young people in achieving their best while simultaneously developing self-confidence, resilience and a positive work ethic.
