Smooth operation of the clutch is going to be your best bet. You don't need to rev the engine to oblivion when taking off from a stop, and rev matching when downshifting is more important than rev matching when upshifting. When driving normally, shifting up between 2.5-3k rpm typically makes for the smoothest shifting.

Ahh I see thank you! I'll have to start downshifting and getting my partner too as well.

Downshifting, if not done right, can cause copious amounts of wear on your clutch disk. When downshifting, you'll want to raise the RPM by about 1000 and slowly release the clutch. It may vary a bit depending on the gear you're going into, and the speed that you are going. You'll get used to it with time, just pay attention to what the car is doing when you downshift and adjust rpm accordingly.
