Just wanted to add, keep things very simple. Break things down into steps for her. Most TBs learn very quickly, but also get frustrated if they do not understand what you want. So you don't erode any confidence you build into her, just make sure you take a step back if you see her getting frustrated. Better to teach her a little thing successfully than get her all worked up about something more complicated. I'm sure she'll quickly surprise you with her capacity to learn and even more to in her willingness to try for you.
You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.
