When you are first learning to hit kickers (jumps) the main thing you need to worry about is proper speed as you approach and nice solid form as you hit the jump.

Use edges to control speed as you approach but before take off let your board go flat.

Also, when first learning dont worry about actually ollie-ing to get air off of the jump. Its called a jump for a reason, with proper speed it does all of the work for you.
