Guitar/Voice Tutor (On Campus)

I have some singing experience, but I want to learn a few songs on guitar (and sing along) to surprise my family. I have been trying to teach myself from youtube but it's not working because I am always home at the same time as my family members.

I am an administrative assistant at the U. Lesson times would need to be mid-day during working hours because I would use my lunch hour. Location would need to be on campus - again because of time (lunch hour) limitations. Frequency and payment would need to be worked out.
