2 users sharing same working copy

I started using TortoiseSVN as a simple way to keep track of my
changes to source code while working as a one-person team. I have a
single repository with many directories, each of which contains a
project. The repository and working files are located on my hard
drive. We recently hired a second developer and I have shared my
working files with her. Up until now, I've monitored the changes
she's made and committed them myself. She cannot see the status of
the files from her PC, even though TortoiseSVN is installed. I would
like her to be able to commit her own changes and be able to see which
files have been modifed and which not.

I understand that it's probably more to the point of the software to
set up a server and have her checkout her own working copy and commit
her changes to the repo but in my mind it's overly complicated for our
purposes. (We would each have to verify that the other had not made
changes and checkout a fresh copy every time we did any work on a
project?). I set up the server and had this working so don't think
it's out of laziness or ignorance that I'm not into it.

Any advice is nice,
