Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I have experience doing this sort of thing in school. I've helped underclassmen in high school with their English and History papers on several occasions, and, during my College Semester in Japan, I helped native students who already had some skill at English spot and correct the mistakes in their papers. So, if, you've got decently written fanfiction, you're tired of all those reviewers pointing out the grammatical mistakes, and you'd like to have someone go over it, just let me know.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I don't like to brag, but I had one hell of an English teacher in high school. I wouldn't have half the writing skills I have today if it weren't for him. Those who agree that my writing style is superb (not really my opinion, though) can see where it came from. Like I mention above, I've done this sort of thing, and I can easily spot grammatical errors, and recommend changes that will make your story (grammar-wise) sound much better.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I honestly don't know what to put for weaknesses. I guess my weakness would be in trying to beta-read a story I just had no interest in. I can't beta-read non-english works, of course. And I'm not sure I'll be able to beta-read dozens of works a week.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I've only written anime/manga-based works so far, so I guess I'd do best with those (though I am into comics, both Marvel and Batman. And that's not a joke). For those who want a list of anime and manga I've gone through, go to my profile page. Anyway, I don't mind long fics, as long as they're interesting and don't drag. I do best with comedy and action/sci-fi.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
For anime fans, please, NO Naruto, Pokemon, or Digimon. And probably no Bleach, either. I found the latter too long and boring to follow. As for story styles, I don't go well with melodrama. And romantic stories are one in a million. If you really want me to look over one, I'll do it, but keep in mind, it'll be like hearing from a critic.
