Don't be afraid to give it more gas.
whenever if first started driving stick on my friends car o always thought you had to shift really fast like in fst and the furious but i learned in the begginging try to shift as slow and smooth as you can
when you try to get into first, dont be afraid to use more gas.
try learning with someone else. my dad cant teach so my sister taught me how
Practice getting the car moving with NO gas, just by using the clutch. That should give you a good feel of how the clutch engages. That's the only tip I got, it just takes practice and soon it will be second nature.
If you slip the clutch properly just the idle of the engine will be enough to get moving.
