Inside corners are the toughest. I typically use a handsaw laid down over a piece of tile and cardboard to get the height right, then finish off with a sharp chisel. You'll be able to get most with the handsaw. Using a small sharp 1/4" chisel disturbs things less, tho it takes a little longer to peck away at it. There's not that much to do, so take your time and you'll be fine.
