"He needs help in climbing every step of the ladder." Is this a proper sentence?
The intent is to convey someone's ability to solve a Mathematical/Software Problem. So if one is assisted at multiple steps to solve a problem but still struggles to move ahead to the next step.
Example: I provide a person A approach to solving a problem and break it down into multiple sub-problems to solve to make it easier for person A. But person A asks me how to solve a sub-problem and gets stuck. I help him and he gets stuck at other sub-problem...
I thought of the sentence "He needs help in climbing every step of the ladder." to convey this figuratively. Not sure if this is correct or if there is a better way to convey this
Some other words that come to my mind are: spoon feeding
