I tutor younger students who want to know more about animation and how they can make their own animated projects and rigs.

I am well versed in Adobe Photoshop for character designs as well as Adobe Animate for 2D Character set-up and rigging

My goal is to teach people about the inner workings of animation and spark interest in the arts. Whether you're new to animation or want to pick up a few new skills, I would be more than happy to supply you with all the information I can.

Highly Recommended Tutor!

I am new to animation and Sarian helped me with the basics of Adobe Animate. She was flexible and explained things in the simplest terms possible. I felt super comfortable and really enjoyed learning with Sarian. I am already planning our next session as I storyboard my next animation project!

Dione, 1 lesson with Sarian

Friendly and approachable

Sarian is like "asking a friend for help". My daughter is taking classes with her and it's been a very positive experience she looks forward to every week. Sarian definitely understands Anime and Photoshop well, and has taught the "next step would be" skills very well.

Shawn, 3 lessons with Sarian

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

My son had several lessons with Sarian. Reviewed animation topics such as character design, character rotation, and storyboarding. She’s very knowledgeable and always explains topics well.

Jacqueline , 22 lessons with Sarian

Knowledgeable and easy to work with.

Sarian was willing to address my exact needs rather than just give a general tutorial. She's a very good communicator. We worked primarily on rigging puppets - which was what I asked for but she showed me other important features.

Kevin, 2 lessons with Sarian

Excellent Tutor Session

I just had an excellent learning session with Sarian. She taught me how to use my character rigs in the main timeline on my animations which was so vital to creating a successful project. She was very patient with me and took time to communicate with me effectively and properly. I'll definitely be booking her again!

Mic, 2 lessons with Sarian

She has good knowledge and experience in Photoshop

Gradient tool, and adding images, setting up fonts and how to use. She also helped me with my project that I am working on. She is the best. She also suggested me the premier pro for my video editing.
