Here we go. Right hand -- continental grip
Left hand -- Eastern FH

With this combination the racket face should be on the edge (not open, not close) or maybe slightly close by 91 degrees.

If with this grip combination the face of the racket is closed in the backswing this means she is turning her wrists to make this happen. This is an extra thing and must be eliminated.
