Well no, don't just "stick to 'Hello World'" programs. What Marnen means ishat if you are trying to actually create a tutorial for others to learn Ruby from, it would be a good idea to wait until you know the language much more intimately. That way, you won't risk providing incorrect information, or just bad practices in your tutorial. 

In the mean time, to actually get to that level of competence in using Rubynd programming in general, do write programs, as many as you can. just not tutorials for Ruby just yet. ;)

No reason to get discouraged, you're a beginner now. You just have to spendome time learning yourself before you can teach others. Instead of "Helloorld" programs, you should write little useful utilities, or games, or whatever interests you, moving up towards more difficult parts of Ruby until you have a good understanding of how to program. Also, read other people's code, you'll learn a lot that way.
