That is if his locate database is up to date, which means his machine
has to be turned on at about 3 o'clock every day. In any case, find is

Then the best would be, in Terminal,
kpsewhich <class_name>.cls (for example, kpsewhich beamer.cls) and
kpsewhich <package_name>.sty (like kpsewhich geometry.sty).
