Niece Needs Help ASAP Answered

Although everyone and their brother has offered help to my neice with her photography class in High School, however; no one has come forward and now time is at the essence. She has a Cannon 35mm/ Black and White film. She's having problems with the way her pics are coming out as welll as the developing. (teacher is of no help..too busy). I know nothing about cameras and cannot help. She needs someone she can Skype with to actually talk and show her what she may be doing wrong.She's ADHD and needs to actually "see" as well as being instructed.  We're kind of desperate and can use some help. If anyone has some experience with this please let me know and I'll see what I can set up.

Thank you in advance for any help given.

Do not have any of her photos to upload but can get some it needed.

Thank you.

Can you describe the problems in a little more detail?

I.E., negatives too thin, or overexposed, or fogged? Streaks or pinhole on negs? Prints washed out, or too contrasty? Large sections of undeveloped/unfixed film?

Does the instructor mix all the chemistry?

There are plenty of ways to mess up, but it's a relatively forgiving process once you can handle the mechanical problem of transferring the film to the developing reel (I taught photography at a boarding school, and for my students that was the most daunting challenge).

Is she just printing off the negatives, or is she developing the neg too ?
