The trick, regardless or style... come up behind the bike towards the left side with the stand. The bike will be on its kickstand. Contact the left side (kickstand side) with the lifting platform. Start to push the stand handle down with your right hand while steady'ing the bike with your left on the tail section. The bike will start to stand up and catch it with the right side platform of the stand.
Now the bike is off the kick stand and being held upright with the stand. Now with one quick and forcefull move push the stand handle to the floor and POOF the bike is on the rear stand.
Now stands for spools are alot easier but the principal is the same. Keep using it, and next time have the "helper" just stand there for your comfort. Then you'll be doing it on your own and laughing at yourself for worring so much before.
