If you are teaching a female, I guess flirting with them is not a very good idea.

Don't look like a bum.

Have a large collection of drumming books.

I have the books sorted, just want to know a good way to teach them to someone who's just started playing so they can understand it.

Every student is different and every age group is different.

I use a lot of play-a-longs.

A great way of working on snare rhythms I picked up at a seminar is to use only vocal tracks from pop songs that can be found all over youtube these days.

Here's the thing, you know you will formulate what to teach your students like all teachers do by making a 'lesson plan'. Which is a good thing, but from my experience as a student, a teacher, and an observer A LOT of drum teachers are so stuck on what THEY know that they don't pay attention to what the important person in the room (the student) is comprehending. If the student is retaining certain things rather quickly, move on. You are there to teach the student as much as you can for THEIR hard earned money. Don't waste their time by repeating the the same thing over and over because you planned to when sometimes they soak it up quickly. That is really my bigest problem with drum teachers and I have seen it multiple times, dealt with it multiple times, and called them out on it multiple times. Make it fun. Good luck.
