Hi, my name is Samir Malik and I'm a private tutor for middle school and high school students in the Austin area. Today we're going to be discussing affect and effect. Now affect which starts with the letter A means more of influence; something they have influence on something else. So for example, the rain affected Amy's hairdo. The would be affect used beginning with the letter A because it had an influence on Amy's hairdo. Now the second term effect, starting with the letter E would mean result. For example, the effect was eye-popping. So that basically classifies as a result whereas affect, starting with A is more of an influence; effect starting with E is a result.
