Yes, student needs to pay
If the lesson is is outside my teaching area (Tenma/Sakuranomiya/Kyobashi/etc), the student needs to pay for my transport costs from Sakuranomiya JR. However, if it is within my area, students are not required to pay for my transport.
Hello, nice to meet you!

I have been teaching to students of any age.
