About The Author: 

The Late R.M. O’Toole B.A., M.C., M.S.A., C.I.E.A. 

Ros was a State Examiner (UK) since 1992 and an experienced teacher, lecturer, consultant and author of 15 maths books. She became a member of the Society of Authors and an affiliate member of the Chartered Institute of Educational Assessors.

From an early age, Ros’s father, Jack Tumelty, encouraged in her a love of mathematics. This stayed with her. Later, as a teacher, she saw a need for specifically designed maths books to teach and test. Teaching gave her hands-on experience of helping pupils of differing abilities, thus enabling her to design the material in
graduated order of difficulty.

Also, examining taught her how to test and set objective questions appropriate to the level of study. Over a period of more than 30 years, she has written copious notes to help pupils. Keenly aware of problem areas, she devised ways to solve them. That is how the ​books and material on this website came into existence.
