Lightbulb Direct X Mentor Bay Area

I am a senior in high school and part of our English class we have to do a "Senior Project" this is a two part project that takes most of the year, one part is a paper about a question and the second part is some project relating to your paper. My paper is about programming and my project is to write a program, part of the paper is to interview two different people and part of the project is to have a mentor help you along the way. I have been programming in C++ command prompt work for over a year and have recently moved to directx 9.0. I am using http://www.directxtutorial.com/ as my reference and i was wondering if there was anyone in the bay area that would like to be my mentor or any guidelines would really help.

Emailing me would be the best way: halfpint1170@gmail.com
if you have any questions you can respond to this post.

What would you want your mentor to do exactly? How involved will they be? I'm happy to try and answer questions posted here, but I don't really have time for much more than that.

If you want to just post your questions here I know there are about 5 or 6 professional programmers on here (some game industry some not). I'm sure we would be glad to answer your questions.

yes i know you would gladly help but the project requires that i meet with the mentor in person. My mentor would just help with programming techniques or process but not 100% sure on what exactly i would be asking for since i have never had a mentor in programming before. Maybe book suggestions or something not really sure but it definitely would not be difficult.

I don't think I will be a mentor but this seems like a good website for me!
