I'm currently working on this arr, but I have a problem with timing. Followings are the sample sheet and video :

If you look at measure 6, there are two triplets at the end, so its timing should be a "quarter" note, but when you listen to video it is way longer than a quarter note and if it was quarter note, it would be so bad because of being fast. How should I study this part with a metronome?
First off, this sample score does not match what she plays in several places just in the first 6-7 measures. She starts with 4 measures, not two, of the ostinato phrase; then the glissando to high B that she does is not in the score; later on in the first half of measure 6 the third note G is part of a chord when she plays it , but is just a single G in the score.
So keep this in mind when comparing video to the score.
However, the part in measure 6 you inquire about seems to be correct as written. It is NOT 2 triplet 16ths. but one triplet 16ths - i.e. 3 notes played within the space of 2 16ths, followed by 2 normal 16ths (not a triplet); also the last 16th from the triplet is tied with the 1 regular 16th after that. So it is notated properly and about right timing-wise as played.
EDIT: Oops, never mind ,I am explaining about measure 7.
How to practice it? Get comfortable switching between 3s and 2s and what that sounds like. Practice it doubled in duration, as if it is a triplet 8ths over one quarter, followed by two regular 8th notes over the second quarter. Tap at the beginning of each quarter. At first try it separately, just a sequence of triplet 8ths, the first one of which is where you tap; then just a regular sequence of 2 8ths per quarter, the first one of which is tapped. Then try combining them: (tap, 2 ,3), (tap, 2), (tap, 2), (tap, 2); repeat.. at first, then (tap, 2 ,3), (tap, 2), (tap, 2); repeat.. then just (tap, 2 ,3), (tap, 2); (tap, 2 ,3), (tap, 2); repeat... Note here all brackets have the same duration of a quarter note.
Finally, (tap, 2, 3), (_, 2); (tap, 2, 3), (_, 2); repeat.. which is the rhythmical pattern you are after. Make sure to extend the D at "3" till you have to strike the C at the last "2".
