My teacher explained that evaporation occurs in cool, dry air. But why doesn't it occur in humid air when temperatures are higher?

Humidity = 100 * actual vapor pressure /eq vapor pressure.

so humidity contains wet air   therefor the evaporation of   water does not occur fast. 

 while in dry air having lower temp  have high capacity to evaporate water. therefore   fast evaporation  in dry cool air.

I hope its clear 

 regarding  further explanation plz let me know.
