When I was learning it took me only a few weeks to get confident enough with hill starts. After a couple of months, the manual will be second nature to you. I rarely use a handbrake for hill starts any more.
Handbrake start tips(from a person who learned manual last year);
Slowly let clutch out while you press the accelerator.(like a normal start)
You'll feel the back of the car dip a little and the car wanting to pull forward. You will hear the engine trying to go a little higher.
Release clutch, since you're new, you'll probably still be holding it in a lot further than you want to, so let go, but don't drop it.
