Drop AS2. Pick up AS3. Then just keep pushing through the tutorials solo. Theres a lot of good ones out there. A tutor isnt going to help you build that self-motivation that is going to be vital later on. The more you learn from teaching yourself, the better off you will be. You will end up with a sense of pride, as well as a very deep understanding of not only what your code (and others code) is doing, but an understanding of how to execute / solve a problem IN code.
Trust me after that first newbie hump (1-2 months if you push yourself) the confusion fades and you will find yourself hooked to learning more on your own. The best way to learn IMO
