Yes, student needs to pay
Students pay my total transportation costs by bus (¥440 round trip:bus) to Aobadai, or Tokaichiba , Station. If I need to take a train, students pay my round-trip transportation fees.
Most students study at my house.
Telephone teaching for people who do not want to use cameras: Students select textbooks, reading/discussion of newspaper articles, presenting speeches and receiving feedback from the instructor, Business English, and other types of materials/courses. No written (editing work) is included at these prices.
