I started teaching my 12 y/o son three weeks ago. He got it at the first try, maybe around 2-3 stall-outs the first 40 minutes. A good teacher makes a difference, and a lot of practice will put you there quick. It's like riding bicycle, once you know what you are doing it becomes second nature.
Get a manual, you won't regret it!
