sorry about your graph but agree with others in that you should have sought out help about $2500 ago. To be honest $4.20 isn't going to do it. You will likely need to redeposit. Very first thing though before you play any more games is to buy (at least) Colin Moshman's Sit'nGo Strategy. That will be a decent intro to how to start beating SnGs. If you don't like books and do better with videos try SNGIcons.com - Because It's A Skill Game - Home or some other site that has SnG videos. Next thing as soon as you can afford it is to buy SnG Wizard. They also have a free 30 day trial, watch the intro video on his site. Use quiz mode and put your games into the wizard and study, study, study ICM. Can never stop learning and studying ICM. Seriously! If you do those things in earnest, you should be able to become a winning SnG player. Good luck to you!

The fastest way (although i'm a relative SNG noob) would be getting a coach. for micro SNG's they are cheap ie 15-20US dollar range/hour (although by per hour its usually 15-20 /1.5 hours), within a couple of sessions you should be a micro SNG balla ready to recoup your losses.
Although you can learn the basics from reading and using trial and error which will most likely cost you alot more time and money (judging by past results) then just getting a coach from the get go as you must have some basic knowledge about SNG's after playing 1500+ games. Coaches will teach you the thought process behind in actions and fix your leaks then any general purpose 2+2 book where you attempt to glean and apply as much as possible and hope that it works.
On a side note $4.2 you may as well HUforrollz with that amount 4 BI is just retarded even for 1 dollar SNG's as you are gambling not playing poker with that small a bankroll, best bet is to redeposit 50 bucks and work from there at 1 dollar SNG's gives you a 50 game buffer to work on your game after that good bye pokerz hello casino wars.

Videos and forums (2+2 ftw, sry trikkur...) are way more effective ways of improving your game imo.

The best thing for NLHE is Ryan Fees ebook, but I don't think that has too much to give for a losing/beginning player since most of it's concepts are aimed at higher stakes.

With that said, I'm currently reading a poker book just out of interest. I enjoy reading/thinking poker stuff even when I'm not able to play (or access internet/videos) and for that books are good.

I wouldn't get a coach who charges 20USD/hour, just because he can't be really good player when you think about it. If he would win $50/h by playing, he wouldn't coach for $20/h...

I know there are some people who coach hoping to learn to be better players themselfs and charge weirdly small money, so there might be some expections. For example coinflip.com bloggerJens "Jeans" Kyllönen offered coaching a little time ago for very moderate prices, similar to most of the midstakes coaches.

Yeah of course research alot before you hire a coach, but like you said there people who teach to stop themsevles getting burnt out and for variance free moneys (tournaments are notoriously bad in terms of variance and being results orientated) and just to help others but its a bit hard to find them. I think theres a dude on 2+2 who offers 15-20 who's qutie well respected also right now.
In terms of quality of coaching obviously you can't expect much for that price but they should be able to at least get you to a winning player at minimum in micro SNG's with relative ease regardless of how good they are (this isn't a long-term coach of course).
