Orthodox/Modern Orthodox women, can someone please do a video tutorial on how to tie a headscarf?

Disclaimer: I am not Jewish. I am atheist. I know very little about Judaism, but I would love to learn more about this culture.

I hope I don’t offend anyone here for asking this as I find Jewish culture beautiful and fascinating to learn about as someone who grew up Catholic and has a lot of religious trauma as a result and is now atheist.

The reason I am asking is because I drive a special needs school bus and I have a high Muslim population in my state. My Muslim preschool students on my bus are sent to school wearing scarves or hijabs by their parents, which I have zero issue with whatsoever. However, by the end of their classes, many of the girls either don’t have their scarves on at all or it’s all messed up to the point it needs to be completely re-done. (Also, I do my best to be professional as I can with students and parents at all times and I’m hyper conscious when/if I have to touch any of my students and where my hands are for safety reasons and school district policies.)

If the students come off the bus without the scarves on their heads, the parents get upset with me about it and I’m getting tired of being yelled at. These students also do not know how to tie their own scarves and as a white woman, I don’t know how to tie the scarves as I’ve never worn one on my head. I know that Judaism and Islam are not the same, but I also know that the head scarves are worn by women/femme presenting people in both cultures.

With as much respect as possible, if it’s not too much trouble, can someone please teach me how to tie a headscarf so I can help my students?
