Your teacher is right :).

I for one prefer working through a tutorial first. Look on the Python.org
page at the beginners section - there are several good newbie tutorials,
like Alan Gauld's, or How to think like a computer scientist in Python. 

Once you know all basics, you can start coding some simple project.
Depending on what your interests are, pick something that can be done in
less than 100 lines of code. A simple quiz, number guessing game, hangman,
etc. Once you've figured it out, pick something harder. If you know what
you want to use programming for (games, web, database, sciences, etc.), you
can start focusing on that particular topic.

You should read the list if you want to learn Python IMO. Even if you don't
have questions, just by reading other people's problems and solutions, you
can learn things that might come in useful some time. Make sure when you
subscribe that you select for the digest delivery method, otherwise you'll
get lots of inidividual messages. Or use gmane.org to read the list as a
newsgroup, the address is gmane.comp.python.tutor.
