If you delay the monitor as suggested will it not confuse him even more?

IF you decide to try adding little delay to the vocal monitor to deal with potential comb filtering, it needs to be inside the very low mSec range which has a similar effect like stepping little further away from the wedge (in terms of latency) which should not be an issue (3m/10ft ~10mSec). But as Mr-B said, this only shifts the problem frequencies around and may not be a cure at all. But since digital desks do add monitor latency within the mSec range (1.2mSec on the Qu for local ports, probably more via dSnake), analog/digital should make a difference here.
I never tried such and probably never thought about it, but if comb filtering is part of the problem (as George indicated), it may change things (to the better or worse).
