Yes, student needs to pay
If the lesson is is outside my teaching area (Tenma, Sakuranomiya, Kyobashi, etc), 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.
I have experience teaching young kids (Kinderkids), elementary and high school kids (Elect school) and middle aged and senior citizens (various schools).
The regular lesson usually will have the time divided in:
language presentation (10-15min)
text comprehension or listening (10-15min)
How to get 990 in the TOEIC test? You need to talk and listen English, a lot. Studying a thousand new words and memorizing them is not the key to master a language. Talking and memorizing the sounds and the pattern of sentences will get you there. If you are interested in improving your score I will do my best to help you.
