I'm sure someone else will mention it but hiring a guide is a great way to learn new climbing skills.
It's tailored to your needs and if you go with an AMGA guide then part of their training is learning how to teach people climbing skills.

Just my 2 cents but unless you're against the idea of hiring a guide, chances are it will save you a lot of time and expedite gaining the knowledge you're after.
good luck,
