Learn with Auberge

Auberge Resorts Collection has collaborated with America’s preeminent private tutoring and test preparation company, Advantage Testing, to offer in-person and virtual tutoring services. Students can partake in small group learning and one-on-one tutoring from the comfort of their private suite or residence. Kids, teens and young adults now have access to private, personalized tutoring that supports everything from the individual’s core curriculum, to specific classes or even a comprehensive at-home academic program. Guests will also have the option to extend tutoring after they depart through continued virtual sessions. 

For intellectually curious adults, Auberge Resorts Collection and Advantage Testing have also developed compelling adult education courses on subjects ranging from Latin American Avant-Garde Art, to statistics, computer science, language classes, literature and more. Courses can even be customized upon guest requests. As part of the collaboration, Auberge and Advantage Testing will also offer complimentary educational and informational seminars to help parents navigate the current state of college admissions. These complimentary webinars will cover topics such as writing the college essay, standardized testing and other aspects of the current scholastic landscape.

Families will also enjoy culturally enriching classes inspired by each Auberge destination – from learning how to play the ukulele and how to hula dance on the Big Island at Mauna Lani, Auberge Resorts Collection to Spanish lessons and Mexican art history classes at Esperanza, Auberge Resorts Collection and Chileno Bay, Auberge Resorts Collection in Los Cabos.
