I know a lot for shooters who have had this as a hobby their whole life - one who has been shooting for 75 years - still doesn't make him, or you, qualified to teach, either from a teaching perspective or a knowledge one - that is why you get lessons from a pro.
I don't have to know your wife - as a former teacher, I speak from experience - as has everyone else here about letting someone else teach her, so maybe you should start listening and stop thinking you know it all.
Have you or your wife read Pax's site yet? Stats will tell you women do learn better from an outside source in greater proportions than men do.
I hope it all works out so she does well.
