As the due date will only need to trigger an email once you could also condifer running PowerShell as a scheduled task. Simply schedule the PowerShell to scan through the list on a daily basis.

Welcome to SharePoint, glad to hear you are new. To start up lets find out if you have permissions to accomplish this. Do you know if you have Full Control permissions to the site you are working on?
SharePoint workflows can be built if you have the proper permissions and you can use this Development tool that is free to download called SharePoint Designer. http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=35491 - If you haven't used SharePoint designer I would recomend finding some training informaiton related to it before you begin.
Here is some technical documentation on SharePoint Designer 2013 https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/jj163986.aspx
Anyway here is a sample list I created to do this
List Columns: (type) (noted an asterisk * = required columns)
Open Designer > Open your site > Open your list & Create a new workflow that is associated with it.
IF Current Item: Due Date Greater than or equal to Today
Pause until Current Item: Due Date
Email Current Item: Manager
This is just a basic concept and you can always do more :)

Any thoughts on leveraging tasks which can provide initial notifications and reminder e-mails? Saves you from writing code.

Is this for manual start to workflow or when item is added please? I have a list with 2,400 items and I will need every item to behave in the way described. Manual will be a pain!
