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.
I am currently living in Japan as a student. I have a bachelor's degree in English, specializing in creative writing and literature, and also studied journalism.
I have some experience teaching children and university students in Japan. I am flexible with lesson structure and will work with you to help you reach your goals. In my free time I enjoy reading and listening to music. Nice to meet you!
