I would suggest you get one of your early "how to play books" and use that as your lesson plan. Yes you need a lesson plan for each lesson you give. In fact tell him to purchase (or you provide) that book as that is going to be the text book used in your lessons. Home work assignments - piece of cake read pages 26 to 30 and do the exercise on page 25.
Start on page one and you and the student proceed from page one. Yes you can skip pages if the student is ready to skip those pages. He/she has to learn how to hold it, tune it, mute it, make sound with something, thumb, fingers, pick...... The how to books will help you remember all the fundamentals you have to give them.
