The Swakopmund-based Tutorific tutor centre hosted their awards ceremony last week to honour their top performing students of 2020 as well as for the first term of 2021.

Crystal Risuro received the Tutorific Management Award, which is similar to a principal's award), while the Dux Tutorific award went to Darren van Wyk with Joshlyn Dentlinger receiving the Most Tenacious Student award.

Nadia Araes was named Student of the Year and Reece Borman the Most Versatile Student.

The top ten students for 2020 are Darren van Wyk (first), Uavanga Mberirua (second), Carmen Brockerhoff (second), Crystal Risuro (second), Anna Hashoongo (third), Nadia Araes (third), Joshua Strauss (fourth), Juliene Ndjendja (fifth), Fabbian Ntanga (sixth), Raul Maletzky (seventh), Chedly Kheib (eighth), Waldo Strauss (ninth) and Lindslow Titus (tenth).

The best performers in specific subjects for 2020 are Juliene Ndjendja (mathematics grade 8), Raul Maletzky (accounting grade 9), Carmen Brockerhof (mathematics grade 9), Fabbian Ntanga (best in sciences grade 8 - 10), Chedly Kheib (mathematics grade 10), Darren van Wyk (mathematics grade 11) and Crystal Risuro (accounting grade 10).

For the first term of 2021, the top performers in a subject were Lilly Rheeder (best overall achiever for primary school), Tamzyn Hendricks (mathematics grade 8), Juliene Ndjendja (mathematics grade 9), Euodia Cloete (physical science overall), Carmen Brockerhoff (physical science grade 10), Anusha Jason (chemistry grade 10), Dantago Aebes (overall best biology), Kasiki Kasoana (mathematics grade 9), Delano Namubeb (physical science grade 11), Anna Hashoonga (mathematics grade 11), Tendai Muruko (best overall in accounting grade 10), Mercy Keis (best overall geography and best grade 12 core) and Melitha Hashiyana (best AS level student).

“It's quite simple: In order to empower the youth, you need to add value to what they already have. Be the match that lights their candle because these kids don't realise that they have massive potential. It all comes down to attitude. It's all about you. We are only planting the seed, it's your responsibility to keep watering it,” said Tutorific founder, Elvino Bezuidenhoudt.

He founded the tutoring programme in 2018 with a group of 32 learners, and Mathematics and Accounting as subjects. Over the years, it has grown from strength to strength and now accommodates over 100 learners.

Currently, five tutors assist learners in Mathematics, Accounting, Biology, Physical Science and Chemistry. They are Elzeyn Nanuses, Cody Brockerhoff, Zurine Jacobs, Armas Hangula, Dolores Rooi (supervisor) and Bezuidenhoudt himself.
