Try to bleed your system properly, if your not able to, it's time to rebuilt your master and caliper.

Also, he could have a warped rotor which will push the caliper away from the rotor and he will some travel before the pads lock up on the rotor each time. I agree though that he most likely needs to CHANGE THE BRAKE FLUID, and then BLEED THE BRAKES.

When was the last time the fluid was completely flushed out and replaced with new fluid?
