“Can” is a modal verb in English. It doesn’t have a full set of conjugations and so it requires one to understand the underlying meanings behind its usage. “Can” is used to convey “ability/poder” and “allowance/dejar/permitir.”

Your teachers answer seems to take the “ability/poder” meaning behind the word, which is wrong, instead of the “allow/dejar/permitir” meaning behind the word.

My initial response is using the proper meaning. Your response was close enough to be properly understood.
