Amanda Alexander and Rachel Gee have extensive experience in teaching and managing in both state and private schools. They are friends and colleagues and approached Galore Park with publishing ideas as they were frustrated with English text book resources on the market at that time. They have a wealth of knowledge and considerable expertise in teaching English and preparing children for English at 13+, which they bring to this book. They were the authors of the first edition of English Practice Exercises 13+. In their spare time, they still meet to enjoy a walk and discuss the joys (and maybe some frustrations) of teaching, and life in general.
