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.
During 1 year I was teaching French in Tokyo and now I'm living in Yokohama, I wish to do it again because I really like teaching. I think I am serious and patient with my students and I always try to adapt my lessons to each of them.
As French, I am able to teach you my native language whatever your level is. And thanks to my travels and my studies, I am fluent in English so I can help you too with this language. I am really motivated to help you learn a new language so if you are motivated too, don't hesitate to contact me!
