Genius Author

Jessica Craven

Jessica matriculated at Northcliff High School with 7 As in matric (3 of which were A plusses!). She then completed a BSc with Honours (cum laude) at Stellenbosch University and is currently completing her masters in Physics at Wits: “I am currently working on my master’s degree in theoretical physics. My research right now involves applying machine learning to problems in quantum field theory. I am honestly just so thrilled to be in an academic space working on research – that’s my dream gig.”

Jessica completed our Tutor Training programme with distinction: “The GI training program taught me to shift the way I see teaching and tutoring – it’s not just about being a master of the content, but rather about understanding the person you’re tutoring. You need to have a good relationship with your students, so they come to see you as an ally in their learning process.”

“I have always enjoyed doing tedious things – cooking complex meals, running really slowly, knitting sweaters, and reading super dense sci-fi books. I love demystifying all kinds of problems, but especially those in physics.”
