Private lessons for disability person in Tokyo

I look for a tutor teacher who teaches me English. But I have hearing problem. If I wear hearing aids, I can hear some sounds, but I can't undestand words. It's close to deaf levels. I've tried to apply private lessons through websites, I couldn't find. Their answer: I've never had any experience to teach English for disability people, I can't help you." I want to learn two things. I'm planning to live in foreign countries. I'd like to improve my reading and writing, chatting by writing. And, as much as I can, I'd like to try learn lip-reading and pronunciation. I don't know how to find. Could up give me any information?

I'm a Japanese girl. I love watching dramas/movies, reading books, cooking, surfing on the Internet , photography and swimming.
I really like learning foreign languages! I focus on learning English and sign language, but I used to learn Greek and Turkish before.

    That's difficult... Maybe an American Sign Language teacher would be helpful? I recommend using a site like https://ja.duolingo.com/ to improve reading and writing, finding online friends who you can chat with in English, and watching movies in English to practice lip reading. These (Rachel's English on Youtube) pronunciation videos with subtitles are really good: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvn_XCl_mgQmt3sD753zdJA Good luck!

    Similar to helloalissa's suggestion, maybe you could ask around a group like Japanese ASL Signers Society: http://www.npojass.org/english Maybe they might have some contacts or know of some teachers who can help.

    The eikaiwa Gaba has one-on-one (man-to-man) lessons, so they are personalised just for you. They have some disabled students, but I don't know about deaf students. Maybe you can have a free trial lesson with them to try?

Bus commuter pass?

I see people with a bus commuter pass and I'm wondering if there's any information online about this? (I can find a lot of information about the train tekken commuter passes.) I want to see the prices and if it's worth it for me to buy one. If it matters, I'm looking for Yokohama area ones... Keikyu bus or Kanachu bus. (or is there one for all companies?)

Lipstick Recommendation

I am Not a makeup girl. I like chapstick, maybe one with a little color in it. That's about it. I'm a natural type and would probably get lipstick onto clothes / cups so I've just avoided using it. I've been checking out the lipstick (and tinted chapsticks) sold in drugstores (usually under/around the 1000 yen price range) but don't know anything about make up. I want to get one pink (not too bright) light feeling lipstick. Any ideas? Are they all sort of the same at that price range? Local is better, but I noticed Shiseido's are over 2000 yen each. Is it worth it? Cruelty free gets bonus points.

Japanese Men psychology for dummies

So, I have a question to ask. Maybe a guy can answer better... Anyway, all help is very much welcome. Do Japanese men answer to texting when we (women) write melo./ cheesy texts? I'm kind of straight forward and I say things as I feel them but, my boyfriend, he doesn't answer it, he puts very pragmatic answers and it's kind of like he's avoiding them, like making a detour around it. He used to reply at first, he was never cheesy, just sweet. Then... no more!!! I wonder if I said or did something wrong. He says no. But I'm starting to doubt it! Like a 6th sense! What do you think?
