Would this be not knowing how to do something?

An instructor gave Bob completely spoken instructions on how to do something. Bob did not understand or was not able to follow her instructions so he ended up guessing. She gave him no time to speak up, eg to ask questions or to let her know that he needs to be shown. Each time Bob tries to do it the way that resulted in her praising him while observing him, she considered him to be losing control and/or confidence.

After each go home, Bob makes a few attempts of what the instructor tried to teach him. While doing it, he does not have a good feeling about it, is not sure if it would be what she would have been looking for, or this is [how you do] it.

Then, Bob finds a video of how to do it after research.

Would this be not knowing how to do it, focusing on the part when I said *Each time Bob tries to do it the way that resulted in her praising him, she considered him to be losing control/confidence*?

    Bob sounds like he needs to open his mouth and ask for help when needed, and be an adult and accept responsibility for being an idiot instead of blaming the instructor.
