Born on January 27, 1955, Mr Tan is known among his colleagues and students as a Maths wizard, always seen coaching students who were in need of his expertise.
His first school after obtaining his degree was SMK Tronoh. That was in 1979 when he began his vocation as an educator. He was there until 1986 before he was transferred to SMK Menglembu in 1987.
The following year, Mr Tan stepped into St Michael's Institution Ipoh where he taught until he retired - January 26, 2015.
A ceremony was planned- presentations by students, cutting of birthday cake, presentation of certificate and souvenirs and the customary send-off by teachers and students.
