Python 1:1 mentoring

I am struggling to understand how some of these Python exercises are solved when the example shown is not what is used in the solution and can I please get someone to take a problem and break it down for me so that I can understand how to write it in code. This is something that I am disappointed in there’s like no tutorial on breaking down a problem and writing the code for it like where do I start and how do you know to write this code or that code first. A prime example is the first problem on the Hurricane analysis project I read and understand what I am supposed to do but I dont know what to write first.
