How do you know, MARY?:)

My instinct told me. 

beautiful mind, I have no idea how beautiful your mind is but your English is not beautiful indeed. ( sorry for being honest and straightforward:) Would you mind correcting your mistakes in the text? It's a bit awkward talking about teaching others while your English needs to be brushed up.  Although , As its said, teaching is the best way of learning but first always make sure about accuracy whatever you teach others. 

As I've noticed now the post is posted some years ago, your English might have been improved way better for now.

Good luck!

Who knows, EC, maybe he/she had refused to learn English:)

First of all you need to be teach the importance of education to your student.Interest plays a vital role in learning a language.If she shows interest then you will move to simple games, puzzles,stories etc.It leads her to taste the nectar of language learning.Then she goes on the steps automatically.At that time you hold her hands , help her wherever necessary.  

First, My Questions are ; Where do you live at ? What is your nationality ?.....

But, Generally, If you are not a native English speaker or Do not live a non-English spoken countries,If your 13-year old sister doesn't study at non English spoken school, Her problen could be seen normal...Do not worry about her English.....
