Do these four mean the same and sound natural? 1.As her technique develops, her self-confidence will develop. 2.As her technique develops by, her self-confidence will develop. 3.Her self-confidence will develop, along with her technique. 4.Her self-confidence will develop, with her technique. I want concise answer such as correct or wrong.

1.As her technique develops, her self-confidence will develop CORRECT but using "develop" twice in 1 sentence is clumsy. I would write: .As her technique develops, her self-confidence will increase. . 2.As her technique develops by, her self-confidence will develop.=INCORRECT 3.Her self-confidence will develop, along with her technique.=CORRECT 4.Her self-confidence will develop, with her technique.= clumsy. No 3 is better.
