About Saskia

I was a Spanish tutor for three years at my university, Gustavus Adolphus College in Saint Peter, MN. I was at the top of my class for the Spanish major, receiving a 4.0 and being inducted into the national Spanish honors society, Sigma Delta Pi.

I was also the co-editor of the college's Spanish literary magazine, El Tintero. I greatly enjoy writing, reading, speaking, and listening to Spanish (basically everything!) as well as sharing my knowledge with my students. I am very patient and compassionate with students and will do everything I can to ensure success and understanding. Having stared to learn Greek and German, I realize the difficulty of grasping unfamiliar grammar concepts and a new world of communication. It is a wonderful moment for me to watch students begin to learn on their own and practice outside of the classroom.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Botany

I studied plant biology (systematics, physiology, genetics) and ecology at my university. My past job included keying out prairie plants of northern Minnesota , where I successfully identified over 150 species. I made an herbarium of plants found in Missouri and published a Wikipedia article regarding a plant enzyme. I also wrote a literature review regarding plant vacuoles, which currently did not exist in recent botanical journals.
