Meet Clients Who Will Has Helped


At first I wasn’t sure if I should join Will’s Mentorship program because I was already close to an American accentBut after talking with Will I realized that he would be able to help me improve… so I decided it was worth it.

I would also be able to learn from other people’s questions, because I can’t really think of all the difficulties that I have with my accent, and I would definitely learn a lot from it. Which is what has happened.

Genuinely, after every call that we have, I think to myself how worth it it was that I chose to do this Mentorship Group.

Victor Damásio - Entrepreneur & Business Mentor

“Há algum tempo eu tenho buscado uma melhora na minha pronúncia. Diminuir o accent. Diminuir o sotaque brasileiro e aumentar a proximidade com a pronúncia do inglês americano. E não conheço ninguém no mundo melhor do que o Will para ajudar nisso.

Marcella - English Teacher

“I’m an English teacher. I have been speaking English ever since I was a little girl… I was really hesitant 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.”

Felipe Barreiros - Entrepreneur

“Honestly, I thought I had [mastered a specific sound] on our first call. But I don’t know, maybe two months after we’ve been working together, I found so many other words with that same vowel, with the same sound. So the long term process is so valuable because of that, because you keep finding and you keep finding stuff.

I thought that what I wanted to focus on was on accent and pronunciation. But I quickly realized that… focusing on those things alone helped me to find energy to focus on [other] things that… were very important for me professionally, were very important for me on a personal note, or very important for me as a general English development mentorship.”

Ana - Actress

“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.”

Igor - Doctor / Youtuber

I came to the US to practice medicine… After following Will for a few months, I decided to invest in a call with Will and it exceeded my expectations. The  main reason I wanted to make a call with Will was for him to point these things out and to shorten the amount of time for me to get to a level of English that I’m comfortable at. And that was exactly what I got. With some words I was able to improve like instantly. And some other words like [bed/bad], I still have to practice… but now that I know that there is a difference and I have ways to practice, I really think that I will get there. So thank you very much, Will. You were very, very helpful and I’m very grateful for you.”

Felipe Ruiz

“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.


“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.


“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.

I help Brazilians who already speak English to…

  • Speak with an American accent (or closer to it). Especially if it’s a so-called “General American” accent or similar to 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 accent and language in general, so that you can learn any language or accent that you want.

Who am I?

In 2018, I started Simple American Accent to help Brazilians who want to get an American accent. Since then, I’ve helped hundreds of Brazilian clients and learned a TON about the specific challenges that Brazilians face when trying to get an American accent.

But I’ve actually been diving deep into foreign languages and accents for over 15 years, before I ever helped others with it. I am a practitioner first, teacher second. It’s not just theory for me. 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.

And I’ve done this as a native speaker of English from the US, without any family members who speak Spanish or Portuguese (or any of the languages I mentioned).

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 (or closer to it)…

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