Say 'SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS' and bend the tip of your tounge upwards... Be sure to use your diaphragm. ;D

OK, it depends how you learn to pronounce the r sound. I am from south of Sweden and I have more or less the r sound as the French have back in your throat so to speak. I suppose you perhaps study in north of Sweden then the r sound in front of your tongue and that can be hard to learn
