When I first started coding with treehouse, I also felt like you. The instructors do not explain all aspects of the code and expect you too retain everything. But stick with it. One of the most important aspects of programming is being able to research by yourself and learn independently. If you don't understand something just check the python docs, read blog posts or watch video tutorials. I know it sucks, but honestly wherever you learn, the start is always tough. Don't worry you will get the hang of it; just keep trying.

Don't worry, starting something new is never easy so it will get better with time.

I'd advise doing what the teacher does when watching a video for the first time, then afterwards watch the video again to understand what you have just done, then try to make something reusing what you have learnt.

If you get stuck on a quiz or challenge go back the last 2 videos and then watch them again and you'll find the answer to the question.

Also I'd advise watching every video 3 times. Why 3? Once to copy, once to watch/learn what's going on, and finally to take notes on what the teacher has done.

Good luck!
