What kind of assessment do educators do before before beginning private tutoring of a student?

Various ages, abilities and disabilities and subject matter call for flexibility in tutoring, what are some tools a tutor might use to make an effective assessment and know they are going to work well with a new student?

I use the Alphabetic Phonics BenchMark Summary Sheet to figure out what skills and levels the student has.
