I would be great if you could mention the name of your distribution (eg: Ubuntu, Arch, Mepis, Fedora). There are a great many tutorials, but you will be best served by one written to your distribution.
What do you want to do that you feel you need a tutorial for? Modern Linux desktops have much in common with Windows and Mac desktops. Most are very easy to get started with, and intuitive enough for beginners to learn quickly.
