Stand by the boards(benches not with glass) and push your self out then slowly pull yourself in and bend your knees and turn your hips. Holding on gives you support, until you feel comfortable with the motion. Once you feel comfortable and it FEELS like you are scraping the ice, get off the wall and go slowly. A lot of people like to go towards the boards just in case, but if I were you I would go slowly to the blue line, stop, then slowly to the red, stop, back to the blue, stop, wash rinse repeat.

once you get the motion down while hanging to the boards, your confidence will rise. I did that to learn on my left side and within 2 stick and pucks I had it down and now some 4 months later, i feel really good on that side, stopping and making quick cuts.
