i have never read anywhere that the prophet muhammad (saws) wore such a thing and it is upon your Quran teacher to prove otherwise, you cannot just say things about rasoolullah (saws) without evidence.
the confusion comes as one sahaba used to write du'as and put them in little bags around the kids necks, but this was so they could take them out and recite them if they had weak memories, it wasnt just because it had some sort of magical power if worn around the neck.
that would be like going to the doctors, he tells you to take some medicine but you say, 'no, i'll just put this bit of string around it and put it around my neck, that will work just as well!'
silly isn't it?
by not understanding the context of what the sahaba was doing people have put their trust in bits of paper not Allah, anyone who does this believing this will help them has left islam and become a mushrik.
if they didnt believe this paper had the power to help them, then it is a bid'ah and they should remove it anyway as can lead to shirk.
too many people make a lot of money from these selling of shirk to the people, others just defend it out of partisan or tribalistic pride, because if the scholars of the past they follow did it or their culture follows this then they don't want to question it, but didnt the mushrikeen of mekkah used to use the defence of 'we found our fathers upon this' and so they would stick to their kufr and shirk because they found others before them upon this.
but in islam we don't blindly follow the past, either our tribes or scholars, instead we look first to the early generations and their interpretation of the Quran and Sunnah first, and if later scholars disagree with this like some have with taweez then we reject the later opinion and go with Rasoolullah (saws) and the early generations.
