Just practice at home. Get a wooden swedish stickhandling ball. A golf ball will do but I prefer the wooden balls.

Practice stickhandling in front of you, beside and behind.

Focus on keeping your bottom hand loose and letting the top hand do all the twisting work (use a toilet roll etc).

practice pushing and pulling the puck back including with toe drags.

Just do this for 10-15 minutes a day. In a couple of weeks you will see improvements.

After a while you can start to do obstacle courses etc as well as practicing specific moves.
