If you are on pad, you might want to make it so that the L's are kicks and R's are punches, instead of R's being HP and HK and L's being 3P and 3K.
That advice doesn't really fly, unless he just happens to be more comfortable with your setup which is probably a 50/50 chance. I personally make L1 MP, R1 HK, L2 3xp and R2 FA, but I wouldn't recommend it to someone having problems learning the controls, since everyone has their own preference.
Personally I'd go to training and...train. Play with button layouts and see where you are most comfortable with them, then train some more.
