Start further away from the spot (if the spot is on the right, go a little left if you can) and then you should have more time to get the car straightened out. Put like everything, you'll get better at it with practice. I had trouble paralel parking. I still can't do it too well (Very few places you have to paralel park around here), but I'm better than I was before.
