How about:
* guided
* assisted
* prompted

And I'd also suggest changing the name of the other mode to something along the
lines of "expert."

The same message is conveyed-- use this form when you need help, use that form
when you don't-- but these names compliment those who know, rather than
stigmatizing those who don't.

I'm not sure of the context here but how about "Assist" or "Assistant"? Some
programming languages out there offer an Assist mode that help "new"
programmers "do" the work.
