Yes, student needs to pay
If the lesson is is outside my teaching area, the student needs to pay for my transport costs from my closest station. However, if it is within my area, students are not required to pay for my transport.
Online lessons focus on conversation, and can include grammar, current events or a variety of other topics. All levels are possible (I can speak Japanese to help beginning levels).
I am from Montana in the northwest United States. I may be a country girl at heart, but I like meeting people and love traveling, both in and outside of Japan.
I have been teaching English throughout Japan for many years, to students of all ages. All lessons are tailor-made for the student, as everyone has a different learning style. I am very patient and laid-back, yet serious about providing a quality learning experience. Students of all levels can feel comfortable knowing they will have a fun, worthwhile, and rewarding class.
I have three children, and the youngest is only two-months old. She will be with me at my lessons.
I also travel sometimes, and may need to change a lesson day, but will work to make sure it fits the student's schedule.
