Some people will use stay when they will go back to release, and wait when you are going to call the dog. It sounds like this is what your instructor was thinking.
Other people use wait when they dent want their dogs to rush through a door, but don't expect them to hold a certain position until released either.
I dont use stay or wait. If I want my dog to sit, I'll tell him sit, and he should stay there until released.
