Tutorific, a tutoring programme established at Swakopmund, hosted an award ceremony last week to honour their top-performing students.

Tutorific was founded in 2018 by Elvino Bezuidenhoudt. He started with a group consisting of 32 learners and over the years the tutoring programme has grown from strength to strength and now accommodates over 100 learners. The programme first started out with only mathematics and accounting.

Currently, five tutors are assisting learners in mathematics, accounting, biology, physical science and chemistry. Tutors include Elzeyn Nanuses, Elvino Bezuidenhoudt, Cody Brockerhoff, Zurine Jacobs, Armas Hangula and Dolores Rooi (supervisor).

Students were awarded for their performance in 2020 as well as for the first term of 2021.

Crystal Risuro received the Tutorific Management Award (this is similar to a principal’s award); the Dux Tutorific award was given to Darren van Wyk; the most tenacious student was Joshlyn Dentlinger; Nadia Araes was the student of the year; and Reece Borman was named as the most versatile student.

The top ten students for 2020 were: 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 (six), Raul Maletzky (seventh), Chedly Kheib (eight), Waldo Strauss (ninth) and Lindslow Titus (tenth).

The best in subject for 2020 was Juliene Ndjendja (mathematics grade 8), Raul Maletzky (accounting grade 9), Carmen Brockerhoof (mathematics grade 9), Fabian 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 best in 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 (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 light 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 own responsibility to keep watering it,”
