need advice on teaching older learner one to one

Hi my friends. I want to ask a question to my colleagues all over the world. I've just started a new job and they want me to teach English to the administrator. Actually I'm not bad at preparing lessons plans and making mindmaps, but, since it is all about teaching a man who is older and more superior than me, I don't know what to do. He can speak German and he has some pronunciation problems because of confusing English with German. In addition he can get what he reads but he suffers from listening. I'll appreciate if you share your ideas and experiences with me. Thank you!
