Where to ask for tutoring?

I'm sorry if this should be obvious, but I've looked around on JavaRanch and can't see a reasonable place to post a request for a tutor.
This isn't, like, an ongoing deal. I would like to hire somebody who knows Java servlet programming to come to my house once and walk me through the process of:
* Installing and setting up a servlet engine, either Tomcat or Caucho Resin
* Installing and setting up an IDE, whichever one they like best (I've tried Forte but...)
* Writing one working project that includes an html page, a servlet, a bean, and a jsp, all working together
The reason I'm even telling you all this is because usually people say, "Why not just get the advice you need by email?" This is not a situation where I can get the advice I need by email. What I need is someone who has done all the things listed above to come and walk me through making it actually work. I've been struggling with this for WEEKS and am frustrated beyond belief.
Is there a place where I can make this request on JavaRanch?

I sent you a document that I hand out to my class at Hofstra University on installing Tomcat. I hope it helps.

If Tom's doc and other online resources don't do it for you, the most appropriate forum to hire a tutor would probably be "Jobs Offered". You'll probably get more responses than you need, many of them from folks who didn't actually read your post very carefully - so you'll probably want to delete the post after you find what you need, to cut off the flow of jobseekers sending you e-mail. If the Jobs Offered forum doesn't work, you could also try Apache/Tomcat or Servlets (which I hope you already checked out in your quest for understanding). Good luck...
