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.
The topics and the type of lesson can be chosen with the student. We can exercise the speaking or the student can tell me about his doubts about grammar or other things, like articles or TV news.
Hi I'm Valentina! I've been living in Tokyo for a few months but I've been here many times. I am actually studying Japanese because I want to go to University here. My native language is Italian but I'm also fluent with English (I have a C1 level certificate, also known as CAE).
I enjoy doing any kind of lesson. I have taught English to a bit but I love talking with people about anything, so if you are looking for somebody to practice your speaking then I'm up for it!
I hope you will enjoy spending you time with me while learning. See you soon!
