How do I teach my non-tennis playing friend to feed me practice balls?

How do I teach my non-tennis playing friend to feed me practice balls?

I'm a 4.5 player (recovered competitive junior player) ... my parents used to take me out and feed balls to me to work on my strokes ... now that I'm an adult - and living on the opposite coast - I need someone to feed balls to me. How do I teach a non-tennis player to feed balls to me? What grip should I have them use? Where should they feed the ball?

Use underhand feeds if feeding with racket is hard for him.
