Please don't take this as a rude reply, because I truly don't mean for it to be- but perhaps taking an introductory English writing class might be in your best interest right now. Have you taken English 1301 yet? (not sure if it has the same name in all colleges, sorry). I'm a highschool senior taking it at college as a dual credit course, and it teaches you to write all kinds of different essays including a thesis, descriptive essay, research paper, etc., It also goes over proper writing 'ettiquette', how to omit to be verbs, how to write actively, and how to write in different tenses.
Another option that may help you as you learn to write papers is buying the book "A writer's reference with writing about literature" by Diana Hacker and Nancy Sommers. It is a VERY useful guide and is required in my English 301 class. It has the rules of grammar, punctuation help, word choice, and multiple other topics covered within it and it is very easy to use.
