There are a bunch of posts in here about teaching or learning left handed. The majority of lefties seem to knit "right handed", but there are a few who do knit truly left handed.

Here's a few links to previous posts that'll probably answer most of your questions.

My suggestion for ease with patterns and all the tutorials around is to teach her right handed. Remind her that knitting is awkward for virtually everyone at first regardless of handedness. If she truly can't get it then give these sights a try. You Tube has lots of videos, too.
