How would YOU teach someone to be a photographer?

I would first like to thank everyone who participated in my recent thread,"How technical do we need to be?" An interesting discussion & very civil. Thank's all.

As a sort of follow up, it would be interesting to know how YOU would teach a beginner photography. Starting with the purchase of the camera & going all the way to post processing. I will find it interesting to see how many different ways there are to reach the same goal, of producing great images. Do different genres of photography require different teaching methods? It would also be interesting to know what qualities you believe make a good teacher, & if you are a pro, what was the best advice you were given years ago, that still serves you well today?
