Here's a tutorial I found, although I can't say I've tried it myself. The comments on the site are all positive though:

I think it's helpful for entrelac, because such small pieces mean a lot of turning. Knitting backwards eliminates the need to turn. I practiced a little bit, and that's how I taught my husband to knit (he's left handed, and couldn't get the continental thing down... he got it backwards though!)
