Computer science help

My computer science is so bad at coding, i've had him during GCSES and we barely did any coding, and now im doing A-levels, he still barely is doing anything and i know its just a thing you have to research yourself but he doesn't even answer questions and tells us to do it ourselves even like...hes the teacher? Anyways im frustrated because i need to do good in this NEA.

Does anyone have any computer science links for OCR for python coding? Basically python coding in general, whether its via an app, book, youtube video etc, please please please tell me

This might be a long one.
FreeCodeCamp Youtube channel
Coding with Mosh Youtube channel
^ both of the above have great beginner python courses, so choose the one you like more (i chose Mosh) . FCC also has lots more python courses for more stuff like tkinter.
for coding practice problems I highly recommend Hackerrank , CodeWars or/and Project Euler for challenging mathematical programming challenges. (all websites btw)
On top of this there is also Harvard's CS50 course, which is completely free and taught by the wonderful David Malan. You can find CS50 here (https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=8mAITcNt710) or view CS50s Official Youtube channel. < cs50 is more for General CS concepts, so heres CS50P (Python) (https://www.edx.org/course/cs50s-introduction-to-programming-with-python) on edX, a wonderful free course platform. When you finish a couple of these courses, feel free to look for more on edX or Coursera. I feel like this is enough to get you started so I wish you the best of luck in your coding journey!!
