    Red face "tease your brain",teaching & mentoring,"I am in a jam","hideaway"

    1) Does "tease your brain" mean "exercise your brain"?


    2) Is the sentence in good grammer?
    "Reading is one of the way to tease your brain."


    3) What are the differences between teaching & mentoring?


    4) Does "I am in a jam" mean "I am in a difficult situation"?


    5) Is the sentence in good grammer?
    "Please come and help me. I am totally in a jam."


    6) I know one the defination of "hideaway" is a place for safety, privacy
    and relaxation.
    Then what does it mean when we put "hideaway" in a road or highway?


    7) Is the sentence in good grammer?

    After a whole week's busy work, I would rather look for a hideaway
    to relax myself a bit, instead of joining any social gathering.



    Many thanks.

    "Reading is one of the ways to tease your brain." With alteration, grammatically it is fine


    3) What are the differences between teaching & mentoring?
    "Teaching" = impart knowledge to another person or impart skills to another person
    "Mentor" = Someone who advises, supervises and counsels another person. Not directly concerned with imparting knowledge.

    4) Does "I am in a jam" mean "I am in a difficult situation"? Yes


    5) Is this sentence good grammer?
    "Please come and help me. I am totally in a jam." Yes


    6) I know one definition of "hideaway" is a place for safety, privacy
    and relaxation.
    Then what does it mean when we put "hideaway" in a road or highway? Can you give a sentence in which it appears?

    After a whole week's busy work, I would rather find a hideaway in which to relax than join/go to any social gathering.



    Many thanks.
