and it looks like you need to do a bunch of paperwork to get setup on this and have a disclosure document and be a registered
You have no idea how much time, effort and money you will have to expend to start a franchise. A "bunch of paperwork" doesn't begin to describe it. There is a different arrangement you might consider. That is to offer certain people who you trust the opportunity to have you assist them to open their own studio. The exact nature of your tutoring, financial investment would be negotiated on an individual basis. In the end you would own a minority interest in the new establishment to be majority owned and operated by the other people. This is a far superior, i.e. less risky arrangement from your standpoint to a franchise, which I do not believe you could get off the ground.

You will probably end up having to tailor each location to the needs of the partners. This is an extremely complex business arrangement to try to put together so that everyone's is protected. It can be a franchise, a co-partnership, a joint venture, a management agreement, so don't get hung up on nomenclature. What you call it is immaterial.
Also use real lawyers for this, and oh yes, you cannot use one lawyer or law firm to write this up for everyone.
Yes. Studio Ownership Program or just plain Business Opportunity, is perfectly acceptable in advertising. Not everything needs extensive reorganization approvals and disclosures. The reason you don't use "franchise" because that denotes a particular type of business that is highly regulated, simply selling a business participation opportunity is not.
