Don't understand what's wrong with my innit method and the error is not helping in the least.

Been stuck for a while and it looks fine to me, my other code I was building along with him during the class works fine and the syntax is the same.

first_class.py
class Student:
    name = "Your Name"

    def __innit__(self, name):
        self.name = name

    def praise(self):
        return "You inspire me, {}".format(self.name)

    def reassurance(self):
        return "Chin up, {}. You'll get it next time!".format(self.name)

    def feedback(self, grade):
        if grade > 50:
            return self.praise()
        return self.reassurance()

Good deal, spotting your own issue. You can also (optionally) remove the original declaration:

#   name = "Your Name"  <-- this line can be removed
    def __init__(self, name):
        self.name = name
