Geodesics on surfaces

I’m 17 so I don’t have a formal education in mathematics so forgive me if I sound stupid, I am currently self teaching myself differential geometry and I was wondering what kind of method I would use to compute geodesics on surfaces via the metric tensor, I heard that you can use the metric tensor but I’m not sure how I would go about this
