In real life, I'm an English teacher, so beta'ing is similar to what I do as part of my everyday career.
Beta style: I'm a flexible beta; I am willing to go back and forth, reading through multiple versions of a story, if need be. I default to a comprehensive critique unless asked otherwise; I want to be helpful, but I don't sugar coat. I work with Track Changes to make comments and suggestions and to ask questions.
Genres: I'm willing to beta just about anything except poetry. I'll do AU on a story-by-story basis.
Ratings: I can beta any rating, but for 6th-7th year/Professor, I prefer to do it only if it's handled maturely and isn’t too graphic.
Warnings: I will not beta student/teacher stories. AUs I can beta depending on the story. I'm okay with everything else.
'Ships: I'm willing to beta slash and femmslash, but I stick to canon pairings when Rowling has made them clear.
Strengths: SPaG (spelling, punctuation, and grammar) including awkward phrasing; plot and character development
Turnaround: About 7-10 days, but I can do it quicker if absolutely necessary.
