My experience is that the easiest way is with a game. Maybe solitaire for a mature person.

With window managers and interfaces, the problem is that to use the tutorial you should already know how to use the interface :)

So, sitting down with the person and walking through 

In any event. I found this googling for "absolutely computer beginner tutorial"

Subject: [kwlug-disc] Computer beginner tutorials on Linux

I am looking for some very basic software that goes through mouse
basics, opening and closing windows, managing files and so on.
Interactive tutorials would be good. 

My search-fu is pretty weak. When I look for Linux introductions I
find stuff like "How to flogrib using glrebratz on the command line"
and "importing CACert into Ubuntu in five easy steps", not stuff I
could plunk in front of the apocryphal grandma who has never used a
computer before.
