First rule of maintenance - if it ain't broke, don't fix it. *shrug* To me, that's strike one against this 'mechanic'.

P.S. I've seen the mount point for the clutch fork get broken in the past, and could fit with your description of symptoms. This problem can be verified via the inspection port (i.e. without transmission removal).

NB: Please consider posting any help requests in a new thread instead of asking me for help privately. About 99.9+% of the time, private help requests end up covering great information that could be very valuable to other forum members. If you have a good reason for needing the help request to be private, I'll consider it. If not, then why not give everyone else the opportunity to pitch in too, and/or learn from the information? Remember, there's no such thing as a dumb question. We're all here to help within this family of Supra owners.
