  1. Your child can do better with a different teacher.
  2. Your child may do better with a different teacher.
  3. Your child could do better with a different teacher.
  4. Your child might do better with a different teacher.

    Why are you asking this question. Do you have a suspicion that some might not be correct. What grammar rule do you think is involved here?# – James K Oct 29 '20 at 20:27
  • Yes, I'm not sure about sentence (1). It seems to me a very certain thing to say. So "can" doesn't sound good. The rest seem to be fine. – Mr. X Oct 29 '20 at 20:50
