This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

"Unskillful" is a very vague term. How do you define it? Anyway, considering your requirement that it should be easily performed by a human in a very short time, I don't believe there would be anything better than Vigenère cipher or a One-Time Pad – cygnusv Jan 26 at 9:01
What research have you done? This is quite off-topic, because it is just a reference request (or a duplicate of the mentioned question) – tylo Jan 26 at 11:15
