But, if your teacher is competent, *he/she* should have some idea what the problem is or, at least, be able to guide you toward figuring it out. Just telling you that #3.5s are too thin and leaving it there seems inadequate. Your teacher has your clarinet within physical reach to check for mechanical issues (unlike anyone here) and can hear what the result of all your reed and mouthpiece experiments is.

Does your teacher think #4s sound fuzzy when you play on them? What does *(s)he* think about how you sound on #3.5+ (the only way to find out is to buy a box and try them)?

What does (s)he say about the P34 vs. the M15? The M15 is more open-tipped but longer-curved (assuming neither has been refaced). My own experience says that the M15 will need a little softer a reed than the Gigliotti, but on the other hand, I gave up using Gigliotti mouthpieces because I found them to be not very reed-friendly, which the M15 should be if you find the right strength.

I don't completely understand why you seem so puzzled that you need to ask here when you have a teacher to whom you are presumably paying good money and who hears you live and has access to your equipment to troubleshoot it in person.
