try to pick up a few books on the subject, Buckland or Cunningham would be your best bet. look on google books, they have a few beginners books uploaded.
while a teacher would be nice, many people learn on their own, either from the word 'go' others need to go off on their own after a few years. either way, studying on your own is more common, and since this is very personal, you should study on your own. of course you can always ask for help on the forums, join a coven, or read articles to help your studies.
