About Coastal Tutor

Jim GattoWelcome to the website for Coastal Tutor. My name is Jim Gatto, and I’m the founder of Coastal Tutor. I was a licensed high school English teacher in my home state of Connecticut for 35 years where I taught all levels of high school English, as well as Film Communications and Media Studies. I spent the last few years of my career as the head of a Theatre Arts Department at a performing arts high school.

My honors included Teacher of the Year nominations, year book dedications, numerous newspaper editorials (school and local papers), etc. I was one of ten Connecticut School teachers honored by the University of Connecticut for “excellence in teaching”.

After retirement, I worked for a regional SAT/ACT test prep company where I taught classes, updated curriculum, handled client relations, and mentored newly hire teachers. I have also supervised National Assessment of Educational Progress testing in public and private high schools throughout Connecticut and New Hampshire.
