After a more than 10 year long hiatus spent in the business side of technology, I'm looking to get my hands dirty again. I'd like to find a tutor.

I used to be fairly competent in HTML/CSS/JS but I'm finding it hard to *really* get back in the saddle again. I am reading books and taking tutorials about HTML5, CSS3 and JS frameworks like Backbone, but I find myself a bit overwhelmed by trying to learn too many things at the same time and also a bit directionless.
Then I remembered seeing or reading about young coders earning some extra cash tutoring high school kids, and I thought that's kind of what I need: structured environment, project-based learning, one-on-one interaction - even though I am far from being a high school kid (my wife may disagree at times).
I would say that right now I am at advanced beginner level, trying to move back into intermediary. Can a good tutor help me with that? How can I find one? What are the hourly rates I should expect to pay?
