Hello Rafiki,

  My name is Layne Hall and I am not a Cert. Blender Trainer, however  
I do use Blender professionally 100%. Mainly modeling some animation  
etc. I do live a few hours north of you Grass Valley Ca. and might be  
able to give you some face time. I do not know everything (not even  
close) about the software but I might be able to get you started. I  
picked up Blender about 3 years ago and spent a 2 years (thank God for  
my wife's awesome job) doing nothing but learning the program and the  
basics of modeling, animation and rigging, materials-textures, UV  
mapping, topology, basic particle systems and Blender physics hard  
body soft body etc, and more.

Like others have said there are 100s of tutorials out there, most of  
them are great and will teach you something no matter what version was  
used to make the tutorial.

There is an advantage to face to face learning especially for a  
beginner and because Blender has been great to me for the past 8  
months I would be willing to help a future BH if our schedules and  
time allows.
