First, if you need help post on this forum. While I don't mind helping people there is simply not enough hours in the day for me to give someone 1 on 1 advice on my own time and, on top of that, I am not a Python Guru so won't be much help to you with Python questions.

Second, Python Card has a website and a rudimentary google search would of told you that:

Thanks for the help and the honesty.

And can some one help me with my shell-editor problem?

Again I want to reiterate that finding personal one on one help is not something you are going to come by easily (and probably not without paying someone) so your best bet would be to just go to forums for your answers and preforming google searches.

Here is a link to the Python forums here at P2P and that is probably were you should post your above question:

A good man once told me that once you know the logic behind programming and can map it out of one programming language, then you pretty much know most about any other language. In my opinion if you don't know how to work with code, there is a book you can get called Programming Logic and Design... Once you know the logic behind programming, and understand flow-charting and pseudo-code then you can go on and learn any other programming language, minus the syntax. Using Programming Logic, you learn how to process input, loops, if then else statements, variables, housekeeping, and much more. You will have more efficient codes, and in my opinion it's step one to learning how to program.

I never use flow-charting and rarely use pseudo code anymore. I typically use TDD and refactoring. By which I mean to say: There are a number of ways to go about learning.

Another way to get something close to one-on-one attention is to join and attend developer groups that have meetings and get togethers on a regular basis. There are groups like this in every major city - and in some cities there are dozens of groups. You will meet people at all levels, and there is almost always someone who will help out.
