If by "slap" guitar you mean two-handed-tapping/fingerstyle, a teacher will be immensely helpful. That being said, progress can be made simply by watching videos of those who've already mastered the technique and applying what you see. Obviously people like Andy McKee come to mind, but there are many others who are less well-known.

Also, I'm sure there are some instructional videos available online.
