I believe the answer is:

naturist

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'one who is unsuited?' is the definition.
The answer is a person as well as being a singular noun. This is suggested by the definition.

'awkward truant is' is the wordplay.
'awkward' is an anagram indicator.
'truant'+'is'='truantis'
'truantis' anagrammed gives 'NATURIST'.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for naturist that I've seen before include "One practices nudity" , "Person who goes naked in designated areas" , "one barely feeling comfortable" , "One who believes in going nude" , "One who goes naked" .)
