I'm self taught as well...learn to snow plow first, then once you can do that, just rotate hips to the left or right. This will lead to sideways hockey stops.

One side will be immediately easier to do than the other, so spend alot of time bringing the weaker side up to the level of the stronger. You cannot be caught in a game situation where you have to think and keep turning to one side to slow down/maneuver - it has to become instinctual so that you can go all out into a corner/scrum of players, and then stop on a dime.

Public skating, session after session - just wear sweat pants and a long-sleeve t-shirt, the gear will throw your balance off in the beginning.
