TSTS Services

Who we are and what we do:

The Studio Tutoring Service provides:

  • A short term, organized educational setting designed to keep students up to date with their classmates back home
  • Facilities located right onsite at the Oakwood Toluca Hills
  • Weekly organization of assignments
  • Access to a computer and reference materials
  • Dedicated, credentialed teachers with years of experience teaching in classrooms and in the entertainment industry
  • Quality academic guidance and assistance for grades 2 - 12
  • Specialized help in the areas of most higher math and foreign languages

    Our Tutors:
    Our service utilizes Studio Teachers and Tutors. These teachers regularly work with young performers, and each Studio Teacher is
    California credentialed to teach elementary, middle, and high school curriculum. They provide academic assistance and guidance while preparing students for studio classrooms.

    Our Schedule:
    Students sign up for our service on a weekly basis. This allows them 3 hours of tutoring every weekday from
    9 AM to Noon for a total of 15 hours per week, which is what Title 8 of the California Civil Code requires of minors working in the Entertainment Industry.

    Our Fees:
    $50 one-time registration fee (per family)
    $200 weekly tutoring fee per student (15 hours - @ $13.33/hr)
    $150 weekly tutoring fee for second family member ($11.67/hr)
    $125 for third ($10.56/hr), $100 for all others ($9.68/hr)

(Weekly fees cover California's recommended five, three-hour sessions per week.)

Arrival/Departure: Please have your child arrive on-time at the Malibu Conference Room, located next to the Workout Room in the North Clubhouse. Enter through the side door (not through the lobby) and sign in. At the end of each session, the parent or guardian named on the registration form will pick up the student unless otherwise noted by signing a “Walk Home Alone Release Form.” Please be on time to pick up your child.

Leaving Early: This is not a problem because we understand the reason you are here. However, for safety reasons, if your child needs to leave early from a tutoring session, please send a signed note to class that indicates what time the student will leave and whether he/she will be picked up, or can leave alone.

School Work: All students should have enough work from their home schools to fill each 3-hour session. Our teachers are happy to administer tests and quizzes to students, and if necessary this will be done in a small quiet ante-room next to the classroom with a proctor available. All students should also bring a book or workbooks from home in the event they finish their work early. If time allows we may have activities and academic games available to students for break time or on special occasions. If you have special needs in regards to a foreign language class, please call TSTS and we will make every effort to arrange for a language instructor.
