There are five skills tutorials that you will learn at the beginning of the game. Finishing one tutorial starts the next in succession except for the last mining Skill that will require you to travel to a mine.
The skill tutorials work as follows.
At the top of your screen a Tutorial progress bar will appear.
This will inform you of your progress and will serve as a visual aid in knowing how many steps remain in your tutorial.
Follow the steps in the tutorial reading them carefully. When finished you will see a screen congratulating you on learning a new skill!
To initiate the Mining skill tutorial navigate to the Island Selector menu and click or tap on the coal mine. You will fast travel to a random mine and the mining tutorial will begin.
