your all assuming his clutch is ok, its an 06 so i'll assume the owner took care of the car,. as for learning first start off on a flat driveway or parking lot, this way you can find out where the clutch engage. have the car in 1st ease of the clutch until the car starts to move.
this is your first 5sp am not sure if would matter if you removed the cvd, either remove it now or forget about it, with the cvd remove the clutch will grab faster thats it.
after you master step one (knowing where the clutch engage) then on to balancing, find a slop just enough for the car to roll back (not a hill), in first gear try to keep the car from rolling back and not move forward, the car should not rev over 1000 rmp and this will not kill your clutch, your only doing this for less than a min. you should not smell any clutch this should not burn your clutch at all
after all this you should not have to rev up the car, mabe up to 1000 rpm the most..
