One of the best resources for working on improving your American Accent is using a good online dictionary. You can look up words, hear recordings of how they are pronounced, and even see the British vs. American English pronunciation.
I use the Oxford Learner's Dictionaries: www.oxfordlearnersdictionaries.com
The reason I prefer this for my online dictionary is that they use IPA symbols to show the pronunciation. This means that each sound in the word is represented by a symbol. This is especially useful when working on vowels.

You can also learn the correct syllable stress for words using the online dictionary, both by listening to the recording and repeating, and by looking at the pronunciation guide for the marked syllable stress. You can read more about that here:
