Mimi Seton is more than a good teacher; she's a master teacher...what we call, "a sensei".
~ Kary Sit, Record producer, Japan & US
Mimi's years as a stellar artist and artists' coach have served to foster a deep empathy with other human beings. That combined with her superior intelligence and keen intuition make her an exceptionally gifted coach. It is rare to find all of her qualities in one person.
~ Katherine Woodward Thomas
NY Times bestselling author of Conscious Uncoupling
Mimi teaches from her heart and soul, creating a safe place for students to take risks and surprise themselves. I witnessed some truly remarkable transformations in her class, including my own!
~ David Rappaport, Rappaport Casting, Hollywood
De tous les professeur(e)s que j’ai pu rencontrer sur mon parcours, c’est la seule qui a su lier au professionnalisme de son enseignement une profonde humanité, un humour inégalable, la distance nécessaire, l’inspiration, un respect sans faille ainsi qu’une ouverture d’esprit sans pareille. Peu d’entre nous savent transmettre avec autant de ferveur et de bienveillance.»
~ Sonia Codhant, metteur en scene, Paris
student of Mimi's at U. of Paris Jussieu
Mimi has a keen perception for each person's needs, and a vast range of knowledge and techniques to address them. Her coaching is gentle, supportive and very much in the creative spirit.
