extracting private keys from ledger seed words

I'm trying to help a friend recover his EOS tokens and while he understands the process, its begins with needing your private key. he is using a ledger and while there is a tool that supposedly does this https://iancoleman.io/bip39/ we can't seem to get it to work.

he puts his seed words in and choose ETH for the coin, but none of the values presented match his public ETH address. we know this because we search for the last 4 characters of his public ETH address and there is zero results found.

This issue is getting beat to death in the EOS sub and its not even really an EOS issue at this stage. Does anyone know how to find your ETH private keys from 24 word ledger seed to take to the scatter plug in for EOS token recovery?

edit: yes we understand typing your seed into websites is dangerous. he moved everything to an exchange except the stranded ERC20 EOS tokens

thanks
