The exploration and expression of ideas at SVA is not limited to the visual arts. The Writing Resource Center helps our students develop skills they need to convey their ideas clearly, creatively, and analytically. We offer personal tutoring sessions at regularly scheduled times. (See our website: writingresourcecenter.com for available times. No appointment necessary.) Students can work with a tutor to sharpen their basic English writing skills. Students concerned about passing the Proficiency Exam can identify and correct their writing problems. And every student can learn to use words with more pleasure and strength to express what they see and how they feel as well as to persuade and to inform.

In addition to tutoring, The Center has 35 computer stations where students can work on their own. The Center during the Fall and Winter semester is open from 8:00 am to 10:00 pm Monday through Friday, and from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm on Saturdays. On Saturdays, a tutor an ESL teacher is available to work with all students. The Centers Summer semester hours are typically 12:00 pm to 6:00 pm Monday through Friday only. For further details see our W.R.C hours of operation link below.

The WRC Tutoring Online Reservation

Any SVA student can use our online reservation system to make an appointment with a writing tutor. If you prefer to work with an ESL specialist, you can choose an IWS writing consultant, or you can reserve time with a regular WRC tutor. Walk-in appointments are available without reservations on a first-come/first-served basis.

Come to the Writing Resource Center during regular tutoring hours and sign in at the reception desk. Walk-in students will be seen during times when no appointments are scheduled. Students are limited to one tutor reservation per week; if more sessions are needed, students should make walk-in appointments by signing in at the reception desk on the day of the tutoring.
