There are many free how to sites on the web for it, and PS. It like PS just take playing with it to get good at it. I started with PS 2.0, and there was not much out there at the time. So I just played with it, and read the manual that came with it.

I used video's from You Tube and Adobe Classroom in a book for Lightroom.  Both recommend highly.

There are some great LR videos in the On Demand section of PhotographyTalk. I've watched several and thought they were very helpful (I'm a beginner as well).

I took a online course on LR, it worked.  However experience was what really did it.

Online courses have become pretty affordable these days.  I would go that route and Adobe Classroom in a Book.

I self-taught myself lightroom at 16~. He/she should be able to mess with sliders and just try things. Usually people this age are quite malleable and they can learn quite quickly. I've also self-taught myself photoshop.
