Get a cattle prod and use it on your "friend" whenever they do something wrong, he or she will learn quickly and thank you.

^worked for me. Some psychological side effects though.

In order to make my time easier when I was still learning, my friend got me to buy Philo Stone early every game because I had no idea what I was doing and really needed the regen.

Plus it helped when I missed every. single. last hit.

But yeah. Aside from that just get him some nice and easy champs to learn with. I recommend Garen, again because of the HP regen, Ashe, and Ryze.

Maybe best to start with Garen as he is resourceless.

I'm very passionate about my Scrolls.
I love the way they feel against my skin in the moonlight.

I should probably tutor my friend and younger brother with this method, considering they have a hard time with the laning phase.

The most memorable moments in life are the ones we never took the time to plan.

Take them into a 1v1 scenario custom match and lane against them. Teach them the mechanics of last hitting and tell them to try and keep up.

If they did well, do the same but this time add the pressure of actually harassing them and such to see how they deal with it.

After that take them into a bot match and play an aggressive support with a lot of CC. Leona, Blitzcrank, or Nautilus would work great. Have them just cs, but learn to react when you go in against bots. Try to donate the kills to them. After a couple of games, if they are actually able to be aggressive enough to regularly kill bots with (or maybe without!) your help, they are better than like 90% of the beginning player base. Throw them right into PvP.

I had a friend that actually learned to CS and manage his mana very well in bot matches, but couldn't manage to kill them until he learned the aggression of PvP matches. Then it didn't take him long to be able to go 50-0 in bot matches with no problems. Don't baby them too long.

Bot matches

There is nothing worse than someone who doesn't know how to play/is trying out a new champ versus real people. Please, get some feel for your toon before you go and end up feeding because you have no idea how to properly work your combos/what kind of build to go for/etc

Oh right, forgot to mention that my method should have them playing whatever ADC is free that week, or maybe Ashe if they don't want to lose the champ after practicing with them.
