Simple American Accent
Hi! I'm Will.

I help Brazilians who already speak English to speak with an American accent and feel good when they speak.

Sou dos EUA. Falo português.
Hire me. Testimonials. About me.

Want my help?

Any questions, DM me and I'll help you decide!

Work with me 1:1

It’s hard to hear your own accent. The goal of this process is to discover 3 years’ worth of blind spots in 3 hours or less of your time. It’s an accelerator. A feedback concentrator. Here’s how it works. We do a quick initial call. Then I analyze your unique speaking patterns on my own time, I give you a PDF of the patterns I noticed, and we work through them together in the main 1-3 hour call. You get a recording of this call. Click here to learn more & schedule.

One hour 1:1 call. Whatever you need help with. If we like working together and I have availability, I can offer you options to continue working together 1:1 after your first call. Click here to schedule.

If you can't afford this, or want to try a shorter call...
DM me and we can discuss options.

Standard package is one weekly 1:1 call plus Whatsapp access for questions in between calls. $400 USD per month or $1000 USD for 3 months. DM me if interested – we can discuss via DM or a quick call.

Group programs & courses

One 6 month cycle in my mentorship program. By application only. The format is simple and allows you to go deep or keep it light – it’s up to you. 2 group calls per month. Each from 2 to 4 hours long. Even though it’s in a group format, each person gets my 1:1 attention and guidance within each group call. You’ll probably learn a lot from other people’s questions, too. Great if you want ongoing support. Click here to apply.

Give me 8 weeks and I’ll teach you HOW to get a native accent or near-native accent. I’ll teach you the processes I use to learn any accent in any language…and we’ll apply it specifically to your journey as a Brazilian learning an American accent. (If you’re focused on another specific accent, you can adapt my teaching for that too). Click here for more info.

Meet People Who Will Has Helped:

Marcella

“I’m an English teacher. I have been speaking English ever since I was a little girl… I was really hesitant [to buy a 1:1 call] at first because even though I saw his Instagram and I had been following him for some time, I didn’t know if he would be able to help someone like me who is already really advanced in English and I didn’t know what i was doing wrong.

I definitely really liked his service. I will definitely be buying it again and I will most definitely recommend it to everyone who has an interest in English because it really did help me a lot. I didn’t know if he would be able to [help me] but he did. And I want more help! I want more direction and I want to eventually sound native.”

Ana

“I did the audition. And I felt much more secure for the audition because I had prepared my lines with Will… I’ve taken accent reduction classes before. I liked this one in particular because he knew my language and he knew how to “fix” specifically what I needed to be “fixed.” So he could give me examples in my own language and be like “Look, that’s what you do in Portuguese. And that’s what you have to change to English.” So it made much more sense in my head than with other teachers that I’ve had. So that was great. Plus, it was just nice. It was friendly. And I felt comfortable. I felt like I could express and I could actually try because you have to do a lot of silly exercises. And he was patient in walking me through things, which makes a lot of difference.”

Andrei

“I tend to say some of the vowels the same way while actually they should have different sounds. He helped me a lot on how I can train and improve them… but at the same time, he gave me some tips for how I can improve my accent on my own. Which software I can use, what tools are available, etc.

Felipe

“10 years after I started to work on American English pronunciation/accent… that’s when Will showed up… He knows our accent. He studies Portuguese. He studies Brazilian Portuguese pronunciation. He knows what our main difficulties are and our speech patterns. He’s helpful in a way that no other foreigner/American can be.

Deborah

“Ever since I got to the US, I’ve been studying English like a crazy person. And, you know, just because I wanted to fit in, I wanted to feel more comfortable when it comes to speaking with native speakers and non-native speakers too… And [working with Will] is good for our English pronunciation, especially for us Brazilians. He has some great tricks to teach us new things and how to get better. And it is awesome… Sometimes, when you look for English teachers for Brazilians, they’re gonna say, hey, try not to pronounce the vowel sounds at the end of the words. Like for example, when you say the word take, and they say, try not to say take-ee. But like, I don’t say take-ee. And if you have an advanced English level, you probably don’t say that either. So his content is different because he focuses on what you need to improve and not what Brazilians in general need to improve.

Thalita

“We don’t think about [accent] as native speakers. Even in Portuguese, I don’t think I can actually help somebody to pronounce the way I do by identifying what they’re doing different. I will know that it’s different, but I don’t know how to explain that. And Will, he really can do that. Because he knows what he’s doing. He doesn’t only know how to speak different languages, but he knows how language works, how sound works, how the anatomy of what we use to speak works and it really helped me a lot. In the future, I can either keep working with him to improve or if I want to work by myself, I can actually use what I’ve learned to keep improving. I highly recommend that you actually get to talk to somebody who knows what they’re doing. And we actually had a lot of fun too. The time went by really quickly and I already feel a lot more confident.

I help Brazilians who already speak English to…

  • Speak with a native accent (or native-like accent). Especially if that’s an American accent like my own accent.
  • Speak more clearly & confidently… and to learn to feel good when you speak – no matter what accent you have or want to have. (You don’t have to try to speak like a native. But you can if you want to.)
  • Develop skill and independence with pronunciation and accent in general, so that you can independently learn multiple languages and accents with more confidence and ease.

In 2018, I started Simple American Accent to help Brazilians who want to get an American accent. Since then, I’ve done hundreds of calls with Brazilian clients, learned a TON, and helped a lot of people.

But I’ve actually been diving deep into foreign languages and accents for over 15 years. I am a practitioner first, teacher second. I live and breathe this stuff, because I love it. So much, in fact, that I quit my engineering career in order to do this full time.

My first and deepest language/accent adventure was when I went very deep into both Puerto Rican Spanish and Malagueño Spanish. (I got a near-native accent in both.) I became friends with many native speakers from both places and have lots of crazy stories.

Now, I’m on a journey to speak 100% like a Brazilian native speaker (or as close as I can get). And I can help you with the “opposite” journey (Brazilian to American) in a way that most other people can’t. You can judge my results so far – it’s a work in progress and I’m getting closer every day. I do this not because I have to, but because I personally love going deep. It’s a fun journey for me. I’m already fluent in Portuguese despite never visiting Brazil yet (I plan to visit and maybe even live there someday… hopefully soon!) 

I also speak Spanish fluently, and a bit of Dutch, Russian, and Italian. I frequently get compliments on my pronunciation even in languages that I don’t speak – just because of this skill with sounds that I have developed. In recent years, I’ve also started studying the formal side of accent acquisition, including phonetics and how dialect coaches help actors learn accents for TV, movies, and more.

When I do something, I obsess over doing it well. When you hire me, we get to use my obsession to your advantage.

If you’re Brazilian, already speak English, and want to speak with an American accent and feel good when you speak…

I’m your guy. I live and breathe this stuff.
