Those who teach

Does anyone here teach knitting?

I do 2 or 3 times per week.  What I'm really struck by is the amount of people (older than I am) who don't know their right hand from the left nor do they know the names of their fingers, such as index finger, middle finger and ring finger.  This gets frustrating when you're trying to teach.  I have people say "I use this hand" and show me their right hand or "I use this finger" and show me their index finger.

Any insight?
