Yes, student needs to pay
If the teaching place is from Tsuchiura to Matsudo (JR Joban Line) the students will not need to pay for the transportation fee. If the place is far from Matsudo,the students will have to pay the complement.
I live in Japan since more than 25 years and I love Japan. I am teaching French since I came to Japan and I have a lot of experiences to teach French.
Also, I can help you to prepare and pass the Futsuken, from number 5 to number 1!
Even if you don't speak any French, I can explain you in japanese, it is no problem! And you can record my lesson to study again in your house.
I hope to see you soon. If you have any question, don't hesitate to send a mail to me.
Au revoir et a bientot.
