I’ve been doing cheer tumble classes for about 3.5 months every Saturday for an hour, recently with an additional private lesson for 30 minutes on Sundays. I’m working on kickovers, and I still need a spot before I do one, and I can’t do it on command. Is this normal? By the way, it’s a bridge kickover.

Yes, it is a very normal part of gymnastics training. As long as you keep working on it, you will get there eventually.
Remember that everyone has different rates of progression, so a skill that you may struggle with can come easy to someone, and the same person may find a really difficult skill to be one that comes naturally to you.
