Learn the fingerlings. Play it at a speed that you can do accurately. Gradually increase your speed, a metronome helps. Isolate any parts that are difficult and practice them separate from the surrounding measures. Gradually add back measures as you master the hard ones. Play through ten times perfectly.
This is my process for learning anything. I have much trouble with these types of notes.

Good advise from Robert.
Play it very slowly, at a speed you can handle. You can easily add speed later when you know the piece.

Check out the key signature. No flats or sharps indicates C major or A minor. This piece is obviously minor (we can get into that discussion another time). Play an A minor scale. Start on A and play one, two or three octaves to A again using no sharps or flats to get used to the sound of the A minor scale. You can also just play C major scales if you like for the finger patterns.
Next before starting, note that the timing is in four. Count in your head while playing the piece and make sure you have 4 beats in each measure. :-)

OK you've peaked my interest, C major or A minor?

Better to practice A minor but the finger patterns are the same. No sharps or flats.
