number for smooth communication with you, but we will not disclose it with the
student until they decide to take your lesson.

5. Teacher Fees
Teachers receive the lesson fee directly from students at the end of each lesson.
To avoid any discomfort on the students' parts, do not negotiate your fee with
the students.
We would like you to emphasize that you do not raise your fee for your existing
students because it would be unfair to them.  All fees are
non-negotiable and unchangeable once the fee is agreed between the
teacher and student.

Transportation fee WILL NOT be paid for lessons given at the teacher's selected
teaching locations. Please include travel expenses when setting your fee based
on the stations that you listed as your preferred teaching locations. When the

their own expenses including transportation, beverages, and food.

it in your teacher profile as a part of your comment to the students.

take over your students' lessons, please have him/her register with

our policies.
