Yes, student needs to pay
Students will need to pay my transportation costs if lessons are held anywhere other than near Demachiyanagi, Mototanaka, Chayama, or Ichijyouji.
I've been teaching English through Skype for years and now have 12 students. I usually focus on conversation, grammar, idioms, and pronunciation. I've noticed that students learn best if they are having fun and taking responsibility for what we do in lessons. I am fairly fluent in Japanese, so I can help translate anything.
Hi. I've taught English to Japanese people for almost 10 years now and I generally know how they think and understand what mistakes they are likely to make. I am now pretty fluent in Japanese, so I can translate phrases that are typically hard to say for people.
In my experience, students learn best when they are enjoying lessons and take responsibility for their own learning. I really enjoy helping to guide students to improve the way they study and the way they speak.
I also love teaching natural English phrases and pronunciation which doesn't usually get covered in Japanese schools, but is so important to understanding people in everyday life.
