How do you describe the basic concepts of a difficult subject you know a lot about that makes it "click" for a beginner?

For example, I was struggling with Microsoft Access. It all clicked for me when someone said, "Just think of the tables in Access like individual Excel spreadsheets that are then linked together." When I heard that, something clicked and I was able to "get" how to work with Access.
Is there a way you have of describing a difficult concept you know a lot about that help beginners "get" it? No need to limit this to computer talk. Any difficult or mysterious concept is welcome.
