Hi and welcome.
Here is a link to the Piedmont Triad Woodturners. I see they even have a list of mentors. They may not want to do classes but rather a couple of hours at the time on specific tools which I think would be more helpful anyway for a new person. I think it would be best to learn the basics on 2-3 tools, go back and practice, then have more mentoring.
I see their dues are $40 year and most clubs have 12 meetings and several weekend special programs.

I also suggest Stuart Batty on Vimeo for a very nice introduction covering a variety of topics as basics. Most are 10-15 minutes each. This is not to show how to turn anything (bowls, candle sticks, etc) but the basics to turn everything.

A very good youtube channel is Brian Havens for lots of well presented specifics on most all tools and cuts.
