First of all we were all beginners once so there should be no embarrassment. If an instructor makes you feel that way, find another instructor!
The best option is to find someone that can teach you the correct fly casting habits rather than you learning the wrong habits. It will be much more difficult to become a better fly caster if you have to unlearn bad technique that are now muscle memory.
If you can't find someone to teach you, video yourself so we can tell you what you are doing right and what you are doing wrong.
