I'm not sure what "two directories inside the site" means, but be sure
to both work within the same directory hierarchy within the repository
Simplest setup: First, import your project to Git and upload that to
the site, then let her clone it. Then, you can both start hacking away
and committing stuff, pulling from the site pushing back once in a while.
Sometimes, you will get an error that newer changes are at the site than
in your local repository - in that case, git pull first - that will
merge the changes of the other person - and then try git push again.
I recommend you to follow one of the many Git tutorials lying around
all over the net.
