Mr Prhabagaran graduated from the National University of Singapore (NUS) with a Bachelor of Science (Life Sciences) degree with Second Class Honours (Upper). Upon graduation, he went on to work as an environmental consultant. It was only after a year that he realized that his true calling was in teaching. In it, he knew he would be able to share his love for Biology even more widely.
He went on to complete his Postgraduate Diploma in Education (PGDE) at the National Institute of Education (NIE), specialising in Biology. This saw him then posted to a top JC, where he has guided numerous students, over a number of years, to excel in Biology. He enjoys inculcating a love for the subject, that motivates students to not just memorise content but have a deep understanding of the processes involved. He also enjoys relating the learnt content to what happens in the real world. Added to that, he has many fun ways he helps students remember difficult content.
His students know him as Mr Prab, and he leverages his warm and personable character to build strong teacher-student relationships. And through it, students know they are always able to approach him easily.
