Winks has started to break into Tottenham's first team over the past two seasons, with the central midfielder earning two senior appearances in the Europa League.
The 19-year-old believes that having a manager like Pochettino, who is so keen to give youngsters a chance, will serve his development well.
"It's perfect for me [to work with Pochettino], as a young player," he told JD Sports' Youtube channel.
"You get the freedom to go out and play. He works us hard, which is the best way. But I'm enjoying working with him and with the first-team.
"I want to try and get as many games for the first-team now, and hopefully get a break through."
There are very high hopes for Winks at White Hart Lane, as he has shown a lot of promise for the Under-21 side.
The youngster is likely to play much of his football for the development side this term, but if he continues to impress it shouldn't be too long before he comes into the first-team picture.
Pochettino has already handed a lot of chances to the likes of Ryan Mason, Harry Kane and Nabil Bentaleb, who have progressed through the club's youth-system, and he has consistently expressed a desire to help more youngsters break through.
Winks is currently training with the Spurs first-team, as they prepare to face Anderlecht in the Europa League on Thursday night.
