I agree with Krista. If she sees you doing it personally or sees you tilting her head, she will learn.

I think you just need to keep showing her. Fill one up for yourself and show her how you tip it up, or tip it for her so that she learns that something comes out when she tips it. My son was the opposite...he was so used to using bottles and sippies that had to be tilted, that when I gave him a sippy with a straw, he would tip it back and nothing would come out. We just kept showing him, and eventually he figured it out.
