I'll warn you: there's a lot here. Don't try and learn it all at once or you're gonna overwhelm yourself, haha.
Try watching these and trying to pick up some things. They're not the most in-depth on the specific things needed for each move but it's still a great overview. If you can't do certain things at least look at the technique and work your way towards that.
The series is called Team Canada Skills of Gold. This is all from the first DVD of the series if you wanted to check it out more.
I'd also look for stuff by Laura Stamm. She describes the techniques very in-depth. I can't find any of the original videos but here's a couple that are good from her company. They might be a little advanced for you to perform right away but pay attention to the techniques and work towards that.
People say I got really good and quick very fast when I started 3 years ago. It was 100% because of Laura Stamm's videos. I've never took a lesson, all self taught or copying what I saw other skaters doing.
