Meet The Tutor - Chloe-Mairead Donnelly BA
Hi! My name is Chloe-Mairead Donnelly, and in 2020 I took a huge leap and set up my dream business, a languages school designed to show the excitement of languages to children and adults around the world.
I originally started CMD Tutoring because languages have always been my passion, and I love sharing them with others so tutoring seemed like the best option! I myself have learning disabilities, and I found that when I was in school, it seemed like the system wasn't built for students with learning disabilities to succeed, so I took the initiative and created a school for us neurodiverse to work at an advantage.
Since CMD Tutoring was created (over two years ago!!), I have had the privilege of teaching so many amazing people from all over the world. I'm the luckiest person in the world, as I'm able to wake up every single morning absolutely loving my job.
Meet The School
CMD Tutoring was created on Tuesday 18th February 2020, in a little booth at The Cheshire Cat in Nantwich.
Sat in the booth with another family, my partner and I were speaking to a parent about the upcoming GCSEs and they mentioned that their daughter was struggling with French. On an impulse (thank you ADHD!), I offered to tutor their daughter as I was doing a languages degree.
Before I knew it, I had three students on the books within a week and I came up with the business name!
Then lockdown hit and exams were cancelled. So I worked smart and I advertised £5 lessons for primary school children whilst the schools were closed.
Two years on, my little school has won countless awards and we have established a place in our national and international community. But there is so much more to be done!
