So, she's still learning. Try setting a mirror in front of you when you print a letter, have your daughter watch the reflection. It may help.

It's not unusual for a child to write their letters backwards when they first learn (you didn't say your daughter's age so I don't know if this applies or not). But my friend who's a righty with a lefty daughter would use a mirror to help her daughter learn things.
