I had Mr. Affrime for English and SAT Prep when I was in 11th grade. Now that I've graduated, I can see that Mr. Affrime definitely prepared me as much as I possibly could have been for college-level reading and writing. He is a genuinely smart person and passionate teacher. He even went above and beyond his normal responsibilities by tutoring us 1-2 times per week during lunch or after school. He's easily the best English teacher I've ever had.
I came to Mr. Affrime for help with my son's 11th grade English class (specifically writing). He was very patient with my son, and taught him many strategies that his classroom teacher never taught! He ended up passing with an A! Now he's helping my son with SAT Prep.
Mr. Affrime started tutoring my son about 2 months ago. When he began, my sons SAT score was around a 1600, but after taking the test recently, he received just under a 2100. This is an incredible improvement, and directly attributable to Mr. Affrime's excellent and personalized tutoring sessions. Mr. Affrime is very professional, personable, punctual, and informed. He customized his tutoring to suit our sons strengths and weaknesses, and motivated him to spend extra time preparing for the test. You won't be disappointed!
Lonnie is very professional, reliable, intelligent, a good communicator, and works well with students. He started tutoring my 16 year old daughter a few months ago for the SAT. He is always very patient and takes the time to ensure that she understands each concept. Her writing and reading comprehension have increased tremendously and I no longer worry about her success on the SAT. I would highly recommend Lonnie to other students.
Really good tutor!! I got an A- overall in my writing class starting out with a C. Highly recommend him!!
I used Lonnie's services for my writing class at Rutgers and he is easily the best tutor I've ever worked with. He's extraordinarily intelligent, personable, patient and has such a firm grasp of the concepts of writing that he will make sure you know it inside and out. For someone coming from an scientific background, I haven't had much experience with creative or exposition writing and he made it extremely clear and easy to understand, while making sure that no stone was left unturned on both content and grammar. Where he differs from most other tutors is that he really takes the care to make sure you know the underlying theme of the essay without spoonfeeding me or telling me what to think, while still keeping you interested and motivated with his animated and passionate nature. I feel like because I've been working with Lonnie, writing has become so interesting to me that it isn't a chore to sit and start my essay and I find myself looking forward to learning what comes next. If you're looking for an writing or SAT prep tutor, Lonnie is definitely the best choice.
