I haven't been able to distinguish when to say "pour" or "de" for the English "for." I am only at level 1, however.

Hmm...I'm having a hard time coming up with de in the context of "for". Do you have a sentence in mind that you encountered? Roughly speaking, de is used in the context of "of" or "from" (you're more likely to encounter à for "for" because it's a direction towards).
Ex: Je pars de Montpellier pour/à Lyon. I'm leaving from Montpellier for Lyon.
Pour is also used in the "future" context of time/duration: Je pars pour une semaine. (I'm leaving for a week.)
