I do my own sharpening and am rapidly becoming a saw geek as a result. The best thing to do to learn though is to find a saw like a Disston D8 and try to replicate the pattern that is their, (that will get you the “feel” really quick), when you are first sharpening start at the heel of the saw. Since these teeth are not used very often it gives you a good idea of what the others should be like, and if you mess up a bit it’s not going to affect you performance to much. By the time you get to the cutting surface you have usually gotten into a good rhythm.
