Yes, student needs to pay
Just travel expenses from my home station (Ryogoku or Kinshicho) to your station and back.
I teach russian online using skype, mostly messenger last 2 years (less problems with the quality of sound). Don't be afraid of online lessons, you get there the same result as we would meet somewhere, just you can be at your home/work place/anywhere you would like and don't spend time for train. + much more possibilities to make your schedule =)
Hi! Long time my dream was to arrive in Japan and study japanese language. After some years I'm here in Tokyo. I like japanese mentality, culture and food.
I know that a lot of japanese people are interested in russian language. Someone needs it for business, someone wants to understand his russian friends or culture of this mysterious country. I'll be glad to help you as I already helped my friends from different countries. Can teach you even if you are beginner.
I can speak good english, so, if you need help in speaking practice of English - welcome.
