About me

Soy Andy Leimontas, ¡un gusto conocerte!

(I'm Andy Leimontas, nice to meet you!)

A little bit about me.

I was born and raised in Buenos Aires, the capital city of Argentina, land of immigrants and a South American cultural hub.

I received my first degree in Hotel Management and almost by chance, ended up teaching English. Needless to say, I haven’t stopped since!

I continued my studies as an English teacher for children and young adults, first at the Cultural Inglesa de Buenos Aires and then the UTN (National University of Technology).

I have worked as an English teacher for more than 20 years, grades K-8 in a variety of Private School environments across Buenos Aires.

As teaching and continuous learning are my passion, I went on to complete my Certificate of Spanish Teaching for Foreign Students at the Instituto Superior de Letras Eduardo Mallea.

With extensive experience teaching children and young adults, I was moved to establish Academia Hispania, an online tutoring platform where Spanish students thrive.

When I'm not teaching, you can usually find me sitting at my computer creating illustrations or working on my first children's book. andyleimontas.com

I have 3 pets (and 3 kids!) and I am a big animal lover. If I could, I would foster or adopt senior dogs and give them the best life possible!
