Well I would start with the easy stuff. Bleed that clutch first. Make sure you are getting full travel when you press that clutch down. You can have someone press on the clutch pedal while you are underneath and look at the distance that slave travels.

Take it back your mechanic. Let him figure it out. That's what you paid for.
