Meet the Tutors – Peter Katsoulas

Harry Mav: Hey Peter, great to see you today as always! So let’s start with your studies, what are you doing at the moment?

Peter Katsoulas: Thanks Harry, you too! I’m studying Secondary Education with my areas being maths and religion, really enjoying it! I just did my first prac and had such a wonderful experience learning so much about teaching and it’s awesome that I can bring that experience to my tutoring.

HM: Wonderful to hear! And is there an element of your teaching or tutoring that you found you enjoyed the most in your prac?

PK: Probably teaching or tutoring senior maths students. I love how I could really get into a deep understanding of what maths is and why we would bother studying it, it’s something that I really connected with as a student years ago and it’s probably one of the main reasons why I want to be a teacher to share this with others!

HM: That’s beautiful! And outside of work and uni what do you do with your time?

PK: There isn’t too much of it but when I have the time I’m usually either at the gym, playing video games or hanging with friends.

HM: Very cool. And just coming to the tutoring now what is it that you like most about being with your students?

PK: This would have to be those moments where I see myself in the students and we get excited together about the maths, we get deeper into what’s going on and really get into why something is the way it is. I love these times when I can lead the lesson so that students want to learn and we’re doing that together!

HM: That’s beautiful! And finally, where do you see yourself in 5 years time?

PK: Teaching and hopefully with a family!
