Here's an example of the specific type errors raised by additional checks in the text-encoding specific methods. I believe the main improvement needed here is to mention the encoding name in the exception message:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
TypeError: encoder did not return a bytes object (type=str)
