Yes, student needs to pay
If the lesson is outside my teaching area, the student needs to pay transportation costs from my closest station. However, if it is within my area the student don't have to pay for transportation cost.
First time it's mainly to get to know each other and to understand the students level and needs. From the second time and on it will be lessons based on the students level and needs.
Hello! I'm Jasmine, half american/swedish. I love Japan and been living here for more than 7 years. I've been teaching english in Japan for about 4 years now. Mostly "free conversation" because I think it is a very good way to learn and improve your english but if you prefer a different type of learning just tell me and we can arrange that. I don't have so much experience when it comes to teaching Swedish but I'm fluent so I am sure it wont be a problem. I will do my best to learn you as much as possible and enjoy our lessons. Hope to hear from you soon!
