Umm, you scrape the pick along the string until you think it sounds good? I don't think there's more to it than that....

pick slides in general "sound like ass" imho.
i doubt there is a "good" way to do them, but i could be wrong

angle the pick so that it's leaning back towards the bridge and push.

So you're teacher said you're slide sounded like ass but didn't tell you how to improve it. haha, that's pretty funny.

I'm not sure if we can help you without seeing or hearing what's happening.

True, pick slides are only cool in VERY small portions. You're not supposed to over-use a pick slide during a song. Nobody likes too much ass!

Yeah uh, try using both bottom strings and make sure you're on the bridge pickup. And crazy amounts of gain help.

Just keep tryign until you get them to sound good. One thing I do sometimes is I scrape on the unwound strings for a different sound, Randy Rhoads did this a lot too.
