OK so I tryed:

import Tkinter
def add_rows(w, titles, rows):
    t.state = 'normal'
    for r in rows:
        for t, v in zip(titles, r):
            w.insert("end", "%s:\t%s\n" % (t, v))
        w.insert("end", "\n")

app = Tkinter.Tk()
t = Tkinter.Text(app)
info = [['Ali',18],
add_rows(t, ["Name", "Age"], info)

it still wont show the text I want it to.
