What We Do

As a researcher and educator, I have many years of experience to share with others in how to be happy and successful in the world of academia. I provide interactive workshops to support doctoral students and junior faculty, or pre-tenured faculty, in reaching their goals in the academy. 

New Book!

Like Words Falling onto the Page (eBook Kindle & Paperback) is a concise and easily accessible book for introducing and supporting graduate students and junior faculty in the academic writing and publishing process.  [The Falling book can be purchased on Amazon].

OFFERINGS & EVENTS

Virtual Writing and Publishing Workshops

 Felicia Moore Mensah, The Scholar Mentor, has supported doctoral students in completing their dissertations, junior faculty in obtaining tenure, and both students and faculty in their writing process and getting published. Do not hesitate to contact The Scholar Mentor if you need support.

With so much at stake, it is critical to understand the ins-and-outs of the academic writing and the publishing process so that you can advance in your career goals. I have worked with individuals, small groups of students and faculty, and conducted sessions at conferences. My Virtual Writing Retreats and Virtual Workshops are great ways to spark your writing and productivity. Let me plan one for you and your group!

Doctoral Students

Are you ready to fast-track your graduate studies? Writing is one of the more critical tasks you engage in along your academic career as a doctoral student. Whether you are writing a class paper, your qualifying exam, dissertation proposal or dissertation, your success depends on writing and getting you to the finish line-- a done dissertation and graduation. The Scholar Mentor will help you understand the growing importance of writing as doctoral students, conducting academic research, choosing the best publishing options as doctoral students, and knowing what to expect in the review process, and so much more!


Junior Faculty

Are you on the fast-track to tenure? Writing is one of the more critical tasks you will engage in along your academic career as a faculty member, and your success depends on writing and getting you through one of your major milestones-- promotion and tenure. The Scholar Mentor will help you understand the growing importance of writing as junior faculty members and how you can support your students in doing the same. In this session, you will learn about choosing the best journals for your research, knowing what to expect in the review process, and so much more!

Personalized Mentoring Program

A great deal of time is spent advising, mentoring, and supporting doctoral students and junior faculty. But not everyone receives the attention they need to advance in their academic programs or careers. If you would like "personalized, one-on-one"-- and/or small group advising sessions and "office hours"-- contact The Scholar Mentor to develop YOUR personalized program. Let The Scholar Mentor assist you in becoming more productive by "developing the scholar in you!" The Personalized Mentoring Program consists of Zoom Virtual Sessions, feedback on writing products (i.e., dissertation proposal, dissertation document, and manuscripts for publication) as well as strategies, tips, and encouragement to keep you motivated to reach your writing goals. Do not be afraid to seek support  on your work. Consider this an investment in YOU and YOUR dreams! 

Contact The Scholar Mentor to set up your "FREE" 30-min Virtual Mentoring Session! After answering a few questions and talking with you about your needs, The Scholar Mentor will send you a Personalized Academic Mentoring Program, with payment options to fit any budget.
