I'm also in Art Fundamentals at Sheridan. What sula pointed out is right. First of all, you should practice getting down all the proportions down correctly first. I know Animation requires quick gestural drawings, but what's the point in doing them if you don't have a firm understanding of all the correct proportions? After you get the proportions down, you need to work on cleaniness (is that how u spell it? hehe). Don't make your strokes so furry, aim for fewer...longer strokes. Also, try to filter out any uneccessary lines, if it doesn't help define the form, then take it out. Someone else that will help out a lot is to draw the line of action first, then making light indications on your newsprint of where the head is, where the feet are, and where all the axis points are. The shoulder axis and the hip axis are usually in opposite angles.
Just trying to help ya out =p. The tutor should be of help, what is his or her name?
