Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.

Drake Little has worked a Coach/Tutor for Portland Tennis & Education from 2008-to the present. He enjoys the challenge of working with younger scholar athletes - both "on and off" the tennis court.

Drake recently graduated with Honors from the University of Oregon and serves as the head Coach/Tutor of the Cheetah's Classroom at PT&E.

During his high school tennis career, he played on the West View Varsity Tennis Team, all four years, and was the #2 & #3 Singles player for his team. Drake has always been interested in learning about other cultures and studied Japanese all 4 years of high school as well as college. In 2009 and 2010, Drake traveled to Japan with a group of students from the Pacific Northwest to live and learn with Japanese families. In 2007, Drake also served as a volunteer with Global Volunteers on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation in Browning, MT.  Drake's interests range from tennis to drama to politics...and he likes driving his car, "Chaz."

Drake hopes to soon become a Peace Corp volunteer and has made it through to the second phase of the application process. He will remain at PT&E until he hears from the Peace Corp.
