If you haven't already done so, go to babypips.com and click on the 'Start learning' button or 'School' tab.
It will bring you up to speed on the general knowledge for retail forex trading. Even today I find interesting things to read there.
I wish I had come across it at first instead of stumbling my way through and learning from a mentor. If you are adamant about finding a tutor, make sure the guy shows you his trading statement first. Too many unqualified people feel compelled to tell other people what to do with what little knowledge they have. Heck, look at what I'M doing right now.
And unless he is your personal friend, always bear in mind that the value of his mentoring extends as far as what he can get out from you, otherwise it's a massive time-sink for him.
All said, you will blow your first real money trading account. Start small but not too small such that it does hurt when you do.
Hahaha... hahaha.. Guahahahahahahahaha.... back to work. :(
