That's not really how tutor list works.
We will answer your questions and give you hints when
you get stuck. But it is the whole list membership helping
you, not a designated "someone".

As to your projects here's what I'd recommend.

1) Tackle them one by one, it keeps the email threads
   separate and the archives easier to search.

2) Make a start, write some code. When you get stuck or
   something doesn't work as expected, ask here.

3) Always remind us of which OS and Python version you
   are using

4) If there are error messages send the whole error
   text not a summary.

This one slightly confused me since the standard turtle
can already jump forward a given distance. The only new
feature appears to be the odometer concept?

This seems straightforward but a tad tedious creating the
data. It would have been nice if they provided a data file!

Slightly more challenging but nothing too difficult
provided you can do the math and the document provided
is sufficiently clear.

Based on the questions I assume you have a reasonably good understanding
of Python basics including the data structures, functions, classes and
objects, files, and how to import
and use modules?
