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.
Even though I'm not a native speaker, I've learned English for around 14 years, and yes, with the natives. In the university entrance test back in 2015, I got into the top 100 nationwide with the score of 9.75 out of 10. Then I got into university and majored in Japanese Language. If you are looking for a sensei to help improve your speaking skill, pronunciation and you know, just English in general but are intimidated by the natives, don't hesitate to contact me! I'm not just gonna be a sensei to you, but also a friend ^^ So yes, if you're interested, give me a shot~
