If you're paying for the graded essays, I'd hope you're get a bit more feedback from the grader.
There's a lot of tips to consider, but one thing that helped me on essays when I finally passed was to carefully analyze line by line. I didn't gloss over anything. I would go line by line until I was sure I wrung out whatever I could in terms of analysis. And then I'd cross out that line in the fact pattern. If plausible, argue both sides for a specific fact if it appears ambiguous). Also, try to get in the habit of writing "Fact X means Y because ________" to force yourself to expand on the reasoning/analysis.
Hope that helps
