I generated private keys from 24-word seed + password by
https://iancoleman.io/bip39/
and choose BIP49 derivation path

Second derived address exactly match my address with balance and starts with "3"

I copy corresponding private key and import this private key in Electrum.

And I see zero balance.
In "Recieving address"  i see different address starting with "1FGqV"

So, Electrum imported completely different address.  

Asking for support on issue.

When importing the private-key, try this instead:

Code:
p2wpkh-p2sh:YourPrivateKey



Btw, is there is any reason why you are importing a single private-key instead of the whole wallet (from the seed)?

- If your address starting with "1" then your derivation path will be m/44'/0'/0'

- If your address starting with "3" then your derivation path will be m/49'/0'/0'

- If your address starting with "bc1" then your derivation path will be m/84'/0'/0'

+ Try them and tell us.

This will only work if he's importing the BIP39 SEED, not the private key and with the latest version, this is not necessary.
After pasting the SEED, check "BIP39", and after pressing "next", there will be a checkbox of the available address type,
he can just select, "Legacy", "Native-SegWit" and "P2SH-Nested Segwit" to match the original addresses.
