I have noticed that when I am driving at slow speeds in stop and go traffic, if I just BARELY put my foot on the gas until the car starts to apply power, accelerating from rolling at about 5mph will be much smoother. If I'm coasting at 5mph and put my foot on the gas quickly, the car will get jerky.

I've just made it a rule to gently press on the gas until the car starts accelerating, then giving it all I want.
