One of my best volleying student started out slowly like this. We worked on transferring weight into her hand, getting more body weight into the ball, and coming through the volley. BUT it starts with a simple hitting the ball in front.
One of the most important things to do as a coach is find out how your student learns--Visual, Audio, or physical. M was great when we placed her in position so she could feel it. BE AWARE of distance when working with female students--I straighten out one arm and place it on their nearest shoulder and I WILL NOT BREAK that distance--nor do you ever wrap your arms around your student--it's always at an angle--one arm length away.
