The basic thing is to know how you should articulate the sound and then you need some practice. You can read this explanation: https://www.reddit.com/r/learnpolish/comments/5os9m9/struggerling_to_roll_my_rs/

How to Roll Your "R"s.

Also, check out some videos on YouTube – since this problem comes frequently for native English speakers learning languages, there is a metric ton of materials about it, though not necessarily about Polish. Still, it doesn't matter whether it's Portuguese, Spanish, Dutch or Polish Rolled R, as it is the same sound. ;)

In a nutshell, your tongue has to make a t or d sound, while simultaneously pushing out enough air fast enough to 'distort' it on the roof of your mouth.
