I would definitely sign up for this if it existed. Going from simply using basic templates with C++ to a high grade and quality of single/multithreaded programming can be done by yourself but not always quickly. I have found mentoring to be a way to grab years of wisdom quickly so you don't repeat past mistakes nor rediscover some technique.
