My teacher only says that impurities would increase boiling point and decrease melting point, which is true as reflected by experiments, but why does it affect?

look up "colligative properties" on the internet.
Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex
