A common fingering for a first position "cowboy" G major chord is to finger the high E string on the third fret with the baby finger (fifth), the low E string at the third fret with the fourth finger and the fifth string with the third finger at the second fret. A "worse" stretch than the fingering you are trying to obtain.

There are many, many dexterity exercises. You could ask your teacher to suggest one that would help you practice this stretch. Unless you have some specifics that prevent it, with sufficient work, the fingering he is suggesting, and you are trying to achieve, should be doable. It is not an uncommon fingering or stretch.
