I taught myself at that age. I looked for the name of the kit and couldn't find it (go figure, it's been 25 years!), but it was just a basic kit with a small instruction booklet that showed how to hold the pen and Mae the basic strokes, then how to form each letter of a certain style with 1-2-3 steps. Once my parents and big sister who got me started saw that I liked it, we found another book to introduce different styles. It looks like the basic $20 kits online are quite similar to what worked for me.
