The range of assessment tools available is wide. A suite of tasks will be constructed that is tailored to the individual student and their precise needs. Over the course of two hours, the child’s behaviour patterns, attention, distractibility, thinking methods, working memory and receptive/expressive language will all be monitored.


Assessments take place either in dedicated spaces at the Bonas MacFarlane offices overlooking the River Thames in London or else at the family’s home. They can also be conducted via Skype if necessary, however, meeting in person is always advised if possible.


A Tailored Assessment

The range of assessment tools available is wide. A suite of tasks will be constructed that is tailored to the individual student and their precise needs. Over the course of two hours, the child’s behaviour patterns, attention, distractibility, thinking methods, working memory and receptive/expressive language will all be monitored.

The assessment begins with a brief, informal conversation following a carefully constructed template of enquiry, which remains flexible in response to the child. All areas of school life are covered including attitudes to subjects, future education, hobbies, ambitions and aspirations, anxiety or worries surrounding school, and relationship to tutoring.
