Jay Veal is the CEO and Founder of INC Tutoring in addition to recent honoree in the May 2017 Class of Dallas Business Journal’s Top 40 Under 40.
He is a true entrepreneur in Dallas that started his company literally from the ground up when it was just himself knocking on doors letting people know about his organization. DFW was missing the element in private tutoring that minority students could be successful with.
His organization was the solution to this problem and now hundreds of minority students are moving from failing to earning A’s and B’s, building confidence and performing when they believed they couldn’t before. In 3.5 years, he has built INC Tutoring from a one man show to now an 18 people organization filled with engineers, educators, instructional coaches/adjunct profs, medical school students/graduates, and community professionals who are primarily young minorities. The team is 96% minority serving mostly our African-American community. He invests in training, materials, and anything his team needs to be successful for the students. Students relate to members of INC because they look like them and can relate in ways others cannot.
To date and to move the needle, INC Tutoring has served over 400 students in the DFW area. They deliver tutoring in a holistic manner involving the student, parent, counselor, teacher, and tutor to ensure success. All the while, they MENTOR each student to success and to reach their goals serving as a big brother/big sister to each client becoming positive role models to them. 90% of students earn A’s or B’s in courses, 100% of students go to college or military, 90% pass STAAR exams, 100% do well on standardized exams, and more. Students they have tutored make between 20%-45% gains in content performance. They become students of the year, quarter, highest performers in school, honor roll students and more. All students coming in end up between 4 – 12 weeks ahead of their peers.
His accomplishment of building a true tutoring company built on a standard of excellence like no other is admirable along with INC Tutoring earning Tutoring Company of the Year 3 times, writing 7 published articles in the World’s Largest Newspaper, along with being featured in 23 media outlets to include the esteemed global Black Enterprise. His staff is VERY impressive by reading the bios reflecting that they choose consultants wisely. Their next goals are to throw a STEAM Camp in the Summer with a partner and offer many hours of free tutoring services throughout Dallas this year outside of what they have done in the past. Jay has accomplished being a mover and shaker in the education industry, not only in STEM, but he has developed a company that continues to be the standout that people call to for tutoring, that Jack and Jill DFW chapters come to as their #1 choice of tutoring, and that the community calls on to assist the needs of their children. He is always willing to help others in the city for business advice, others who want to start a tutoring company, and just an all-around humble person who is motivated and inspired by watching others succeed.
