Justin is the man.

Threadstarter, can you bend strings at all? Like a normal whole step bend? If so, just take that and do that in time, hey presto nice vibrato.

Try practicing vibrato to a metronome. Wobble away in 1/8 notes, 1/8 triplets, 1/16 notes etc.
Also listen to how singers do vibrato, they invented it after all!

Not particularly helpful if someone is having issues with the physical motion of the thing.

Try lighter strings to get a better grasp of the string. That way your fingers arent working so hard to hold onto the string. In the begining I used just my Index finger and i still do most of the time for vibrato only. That way most of your energy is focused to one digit and one string. Then use that door knob technique mentioned earlier and rotate you hand and forearm together hence moving your index finger to move the string up and down creating thus the "vibrato" effect.
