Umm.  No.  Sorry, Tim, but nowhere does the OP state that he wants to 
develop in Python, hence "The mission of the Python Core Mentor Program 
is to provide an open and welcoming place to connect students, 
programmers – and anyone interested in contributing to the Python Core 
development." seems to me an excellent fit for "some place online where 
a live person can tutor me to the next level".
