I've noticed a widely acclaimed book named A Modern Method for Guitar (from the awesome college that Tyler went to 😃 ). However, I find it quite hard to work through (for example, I've stuck for more than a week on just page 4-5 to familiarize myself with the staff and the corresponding finger positions and it looks like I'll never get there). I also have the Berklee sight reading book that Tyler recommended but it looks that one's even harder. Does anyone have some suggestions on how to work on these materials?

From looking at reviews of that book, it isn’t for beginners.  If you are looking to supplement Tylers instruction with a traditional course, I would check out unit books at your local store and see where you can start.  I came up on Mel Bay back in the ‘80s.  You might just need a little more foundation to feel comfortable with more challenging concepts. (I don’t know anything about you or your skill level so total shots in the dark)

Time-  When learning guitar, being stuck on a page for a week is really not a long time.  If you took conventional lessons, you would only get 2-3 pages a week to practice.  As long as you are working at it, it will come.  Keep at it 🙂
