In all fairness, universally being a significant other is the fastest way to being a totally crap teacher. I'm objectively good at teaching a lot of things, and yet I still struggle at teaching my wife stuff. The only exception is shooting, probably because she's naturally better at that - also probably medicine, because she's also a hell of a lot better at anything related to that. Real answer - put her on a more capable bike than you think she needs. That worked extremely well for me, even if we're on flat level bike paths, being on a slack 160mm travel 29er actually gives her the confidence to go for it... as for the rest, enjoy hitting every side squirrel trail, and practicing wheelies, cutties, and stoppies the whole way.
