“I love going to learn and read and spending time with Kea and her dogs. I am happier at school since I can read now!” Parker, age 7


My son was struggling with retaining the letters of the alphabet and sight words. He had amazing teachers at school and outside tutoring. But he wasn’t improving much. I then found Kea with Bee’s Knees Literacy. She has been amazing! My son went from having F’s in Language Arts since kindergarten to getting his first B in second grade three months after we started at Bee’s Knees! 


We finally had someone who knew how to teach my son who was dyslexic. He is doing so well now; he is excited to read and learn and his self-confidence has grown.


To educate the mind, you need to first educate the heart. Parker has found his love for learning due to Bees Knees.


Laura P, Parker's mom

Kea is a fantastic teacher! Her cheerful, flexible, willing-to-do-what-it-takes attitude to work with even the most challenging students has helped my grandson immensely. She is very organized, friendly, and has an inspiring personality. Kea is caring and extremely patient and knows how to encourage students to do their best. 

We have been very impressed with W’s improvement in reading and spelling, it has made a huge difference. I highly recommend Kea to help your child. We are immensely grateful to her for making an enormous difference in W's life and ours.

I'm in such a good place at tutoring, I know her so well and I'm learning!

Fletcher, age 12




Fletcher has made a significant amount of growth with reading this year. He reads more fluently and is able to decode more words. Please keep him reading this summer as he is making a huge breakthrough.

All because of you!!!

Kea Herron has tutored my grandson for over a year and a half. Before that, he had been experiencing difficulties with reading and writing.


Kea has always planned engaging lessons and approached each session with positivity and enthusiasm.

My grandson looks forward to each session and has experienced success in his reading and writing competency.

As he begins fifth grade, I look forward to more progress.

Ty made an unrehearsed, spontaneous video for me when I asked him if he'd consider giving a testimonial for me sometime .

Without any hesitation, he replied that he could do it right then and there. So I turned on my camera and he did it! Beautifully! 

My daughter decided to read a story to me last night and the difference in her fluency is very noticeable. Thank you so much for the hard work you are doing with her!

Kea is a terrific teacher! I have studied French with her for many years, and am always delighted that she will cheerfully accommodate my needs and whims.


Our lessons are always fun. She is extremely creative and knowledgeable, and is as eager to learn as she is to teach. Her great sense of humor is also an asset!

I have benefited from Kea's broad language skills by taking her basic French language refresher class. After the course, I traveled to Quebec, Canada, and was able to communicate in French.


Whatever she teaches, skills for students with dyslexia, foreign languages, or English as a Second Language for international folks, Kea seems to master the appropriate approach and techniques and draw out the strengths of her students. They leave her classes feeling a sense of increased confidence in their communicative abilities and knowing they can reach their goals.


I have observed how people from all backgrounds and at all ages feel comfortable and safe working and learning with Kea. I heartily recommend Kea to teach, coach, and consult with anyone with a need relating to language.

Thank you to Kea for her private French teaching. I was able to read French menus and traffic signs on my travels to France, especially while sightseeing and shopping.

She made the lessons fun, too. We went to see French movies and listened to French music in Tallahassee. I looked forward to her weekly classes.

Thank you very much, Kea!
