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 was born and raised in Japan, but my parents are from Nigeria so I speak Japanese as my native tongue. I can also have a basic conversation in English and Korean, so when I teach Japanese, I can use both languages that I mentioned previously, so don’t worry even if you’re a beginner. We will learn how to speak naturally in my class. I hope we can learn Japanese in a fun way just like talking to one of your friends. We will also learn about differences between Japanese and foreign cultures in class. Of course if you want have any suggestions, you can make a request. I would like to think about lesson plans with you.
