Glitched achievements: There have been reports of achievements unlocking but not counting towards your gamerscore. You need to make sure you are signed into your live account when you play. If an achievement is not counting towards your score, such as "Dance Tinker, Dance!" try rebooting the game and sign in again. If this still does not work, delete your game save and start over. (you can also make a back up of your original save and replace it with the new save after the achievement has unlocked.) Some people are having the Knowledge is Power achievement unlock after every level but not count towards their profile. As of now I have no solution for this so please let me know if you have found one. Finally the Robot Master achievement (10,000 steps) has unlocked instantly for some.

NOTE: Set 7 Level 19, the level that makes you want to scream. As of right now, this level is glitched and does not remain conquered after completion. GFWL is aware of the issue and hopefully a fix will be implemented soon.

Video Guides: Some of these levels can be quite tricky to pass, even harder still to do so on par. Lucky for us, video guides can make anything a walk in the park. Tinker Video Guides.

Level Completion Achievements.
Tinker has one tutorial section and seven sets. Each set has 20 levels for a grand total of 160 levels. In order to pass a level, you simply have to get from the start point to the finish point with out running out of moves, blocking yourself in, or breaking Tinker.

Knowledge Is Power10
Learn the ropes. (1) 

You will unlock this achievement when you pass every level in the tutorial.

Smack My Switch Up10
Step 1: Switch goes left. Step 2: Switch goes right. Step 3: Profit! (7) 

This will unlock once you have flipped 200 switches. Like Robot Controller you can spam this achievement by flipping a switch over and over. After you do it 200 times you need to complete a level for it to unlock.

Over The Hill15
Complete the majority of the levels. 

You will unlock this achievement after you pass 71 levels. (Just a reminder the tutorial section does not count towards this achievement. If you are going in order this should unlock when you pass the 11th level on the fourth set.)

Complete all levels. (1) 

You will unlock this achievement once your pass all 160 levels.

Robot Controller10
Become comfortable with controlling Tinker. 

Turn 1,000 times. You will unlock this naturally while playing through the game. Or you can load up a level and turn around in circles until you run out of moves. Rinse and repeat. After you turn 1,000 times you need to complete a level for this to unlock.

Robot Master15
Meld your mind with that of Tinker’s. (13) 

This achievement will unlock when you take 10,000 turns. After you have taken 10,000 turns you will need to complete a level for this to unlock. (This achievement has also been known to unlock instantly for some.)

You may or may not get this playing normally. It is possible to conquer all 7 sets without taking 10,000 turns. If you wish to "boost" this achievement, you can tape down the down arrow key and the space-bar and let it sit for about an hour or two. Come back and complete a level and it should unlock.

A Strong Start10
Conquer the Tutorial Set. (2) 

See "Perfection Achieved"

Conquer one Set.

Conquer two Sets.

Conquer three Sets.

Conquer five Sets.

Perfection Achieved25
Conquer everything. (6) 

Each level also has 3 requirements for you to complete in order for you to be under par and "conquer" a level. They are the time your complete the level in, the number of movements you make, and collectibles gathered. Conquering a set means you have conquered all 20 levels within that set. This achievement will unlock once you have conquered all 160 levels in the game. If you become stuck on a level, there is a great thread with video guides being posted here.

Speedy Robot10
Beat a few levels with a time well below par. (3) 

This achievement will unlock once you beat 5 levels with a time 20 seconds under par. This is easiest done during the tutorial levels. You can replay levels for faster times.

Dance Tinker, Dance!10
Make Tinker dance! (8) 

When you get to the winner's circle (end point) on a level, Tinker will dance. This will unlock the first time you complete any level.

Secret Achievements
Close Call10
Beat a level on your last step. (2) 

This achievement will unlock when you pass a level with 0 movements left. This can be done on any number of the levels during the tutorial. Once you are one move from the end point, turn in circles until you have one movement left then step onto the end point. Or as Zenith94x mentioned you can simple stand in front of the end point and use the action skill until you have 1 move left and then step on the goal.

NOTE: if you lose when you stepping on the winner's circle with your last move your game may be glitched. try the below method to get the achievement.

Set 01 Level 12. Get your energy down to 2 before getting on the conveyor that takes you to the end point, then as you're being placed on the end point by the conveyor hit the arrow key to turn and use my last energy. It has to be hit when on the end point before the dance animation begins not the conveyor belt.
