tutoring student with No English Skills

I need your help. For the next two weeks I have been asked to tutor a student that has just arrived from a Spanish speaking country. I will work with her 8 more times for two hours each. She does not speak any English and I speak only a little Spanish. Where do you think I should begin? What advice can you give me?

Pictures are very helpful for someone who does not speak English yet. You are she can draw or clipart pictures can be helpful. How old is she? If she is 2 grade on up she can also label the pictures in writing. There are also websites where she can practice online.

and entering the fourth grade. I have never dealt with a student that knows zero English. They want me to work on conversational things as well. However, it is very hard because I do not speak her language. Any ideas for conversational lessons. Thank you in advance for your advice.
