Looking for a local experienced baker to mentor me

I am kinda new to baking breads and would like some mentoring in the Tucson area. I've been doing the best to make some bread for my wife and I, but I is not easy to become 'good' with out some training.

Currently, my interest are mainly in artisian loaves. But I also need work on sandwich yeast breads (both white and wheat), and pizza dough shaping. I am certain that I will expand what I like to bake in the future.

My current weakness basic working with dough by hand and shaping. I don't like to use machines, other than to do the initial mix.

I hope to hear from some local experienced bakers in the Tucson or Vail area. Thank you.
