You'll get the hang of it quickly. I've taught several folks how to drive a manual transmission car. In my opinion, the right technique is not to run the engine up to a certain speed, but to practice releasing the clutch at the same time as increasing the throttle.....as the clutch is engaged, the load on the engine increases and you need to press the accelerator to match.
Correspondingly, as you begin a shift, as you push in the clutch, lift on the throttle slightly.
Soon the muscle memory of alternating the motion of your feet becomes second nature and you will subconsciously adjust the range and speed of the movement to suit conditions.
