Mission Statment

What we are about...

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.) 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 Computer stations where students can work on their own. The Center is open during the Fall and Winter semester 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 Center's Summer semester hours are typically 11:00 am to 6:00 pm Monday through Friday.
