Taylor Short

Academic Tutor

I was born and raised in Denver, Colorado, and received my bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Colorado, Boulder. I went on to complete my master’s degree in forensic psychology from George Washington University, and I am a fourth-year Ph.D. candidate in clinical psychology at Palo Alto University. During my Ph.D. program, I worked for two years as a graduate-level teaching assistant for the statistics sequence, I have experience tutoring graduate-level statistics in both group and one-on-one settings.

I am passionate about using my own experiences to inform my tutoring, having worked to build my own confidence throughout my academic career. Many students have preconceived notions about subjects and their ability to learn that inform their experience. Breaking down those notions often creates a pathway to success before any books have been opened. I also enjoy doing hands-on skill building to help students create positive study habits to benefit their future work. I also believe that creating a bond with students is a vital part of being a tutor, and I incorporate skills in fostering healthy boundaries, professional communication, and stress management into sessions as appropriate.

Outside of my professional life, I am an avid reader of thrillers, fantasy, and historical fiction novels. My other hobbies include cooking and baking, listening to true crime podcats and legal analysis, and watching reality television shows.
