Donna Keranen knew that she wanted to be a teacher from the time that she was a young girl attending elementary school in the City of Greater Sudbury, Ontario. In order to reach her goal, she tutored her peers and worked with youth throughout her time there and in secondary school. Her love of mathematics lead her to complete a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics with a minor in Chemistry, followed by a Bachelor of Education. Armed with a strong background in mathematics and chemistry, a teaching education, and a passion for learning, Donna was ready to start teaching. And so, Impact Tutoring was born.
