If that's the case you're going to be severely limited in finding a "live coach" because they're going to need to be within a distance you're okay driving, or you're going to be paying for driving time as well as coaching sessions.
For those who don't know the difference let me state that mentors and live coaches are not the same thing.
A mentor is someone who will assist you primarily in a psichological way, must know how to motivate you, induce you to think positively, run over tough situations, knows how to wind you up, makes you scream "today is my day" "I can do it" etc...but will not affect your poker strategy
nor he has necessarily be good at poker.
A live coach instead should be someone who knows the poker world better than you, has good experience, has had important results, can teach you strategy, correct your mistakes and make you play better.
