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.

Are they all correct/natural? (especially the first one)

Meaningful/plausible, except #1 ("can" is not synonymous with "may").
