Keep hunting her. Encourage her by praising her when she is doing good. When she is at the bottom of a tree that a coon is in, get her to tree (bark) for awhile before you shoot it. She has a long way to go and it doesn't sound like she has a lot of early, natural ability (to tree), but with time and putting her on good game, she might click. Hunt her alone until she does it on her own.
