Let's Teach was founded by former professional tennis players John Letts and Brian Teacher.

John is a former All-American at Stanford University and played on the professional tour for four years. Brian is a former All-American at UCLA and played on the professional tour reaching the top ten in the world and winning the Australian Open singles title in 1981.

Both John and Brian received their bachelor's degrees, and both always put their education first before their dreams of professional tennis. They began running municipal tennis programs together in 2009 and decided to lend their experience and knowledge to help deserving youth.

Executive Director Giles Austin is originally from Australia. Giles has a long history of managing small businesses including a gymnastics business he owned for 7 years in Illinois before moving back to California in 2014. Employed as the Deputy Director of Let’s Teach in February 2019, Giles is currently the Executive Director of the organization.

Bob Hanscom joined the Board of Directors in 2014 and introduced junior squash programs and tournaments as another part Let's Teach programming.  Through the tremendous support of a new squash community, Bob was able to raise funds to convert old seldom used public racquetball courts to new squash courts at the Arroyo Seco Racquet Club in South Pasadena.
