Then, remember to work with her after the lesson. Don't push too hard.
Damn I didn't see the 20 days part. Definitely get her a lesson, it is your only option at that skill level. You'll fail at teaching and she will fail at learning causing a big mess.

Trying to teach her yourself would be like giving tips to a scratch golfer as a 20 handicap, it just doesn't make sense.
