    Asking her what she meant would be the best idea.

    If I would be asking you to work "Saturday" it would be the next Saturday coming up. So, if it was Thursday, I would say "I would like you to work Saturday"
    If it was Friday, I would probably say "I would like you to work tomorrow."

    If it was for working the following week, I would say, "I would like you to work next week Saturday." Or Saturday next week.

    But yes, if this is a real question about working, ask her to clarify.

    I am not a teacher.

    If she didn't specify, I would assume it meant the nearest Saturday.
