Get a good reference book. I don't recommend tutorial-type books because a) they often will teach you bad habits, b) because they're often boring, and c) because it's difficult to look up a specific topic in them.

Also, it's difficult for anyone to teach you how to program because it really depends on your thought process. It's always best to teach yourself, IMO. (Unfortunately, saying you taught yourself doesn't really work on a resume, or I'd have a nice well-paying job by now )
