For truely Fundimentals , Don't anticipate the trigger break . Smooth , continuous pull , at consistent rate , both in the firing stroke, and the follow thru ( release ) .

The biggest intuitive starting and stopping the trigger pull , generally along the lines of slowing or stopping the pull when the sights picture wobbles off target , and then pulling quickly when the sight picture wobbles fortuitously into perfect alignment .

Avoid this , and make the pull continuous .

My recommendation is to take an NRA Basic Pistol course first.

It will teach you the fundamentals, and more importantly, the SAFETY aspects.

Then shoot some, then take a 1 on 1 or small class with direct feedback to shoot better.

Dry fire is good practice, IF DONE RIGHT.

Bad practice just reinforces bad habits.

I am always reminded of Cal Ripken Sr when I hear stuff like this

He always said "Practice does NOT make perfect. Perfect practice makes perfect."

I heard him say that at a little league clinic when I was like 8. It has stuck with me my whole life

This!

I strongly recommend the basic NRA pistol course for anyone who is taking up shooting for the first time. I took a 1 hour classroom instruction from a trainer and then went out to the range for about an hour of practice. I learned a lot but I learned even more when I subsequently took the NRA basic pistol course. One on One instruction is great but only after the fundamentals and safety have been drilled into you. Just my 2 cents worth!
