Well first of all it'd help to see any of your previous photos if you want advice on how to improve them, if indeed they can be improved.
The camera you have is not going to have much in the way of user input in terms of camera settings, its basically what would be deemed a "point and shoot". I can see it doesn't have an optical zoom, and i'd steer clear of using the digital zoom, you're better off taking the picture wide and cropping it after in software on your computer if thats the only zoom function available to you.
But there are plenty of areas you can work on still to improve your skills, composition is (in my opinion) the most important aspect of taking a photo as if you can't get that right then no high end camera and lens will flatter you, and even a cheap camera or iPhone in the hands of somebody who can compose a shot properly can make a good picture.

Do you use software to edit your pictures afterwards? If not then you can get free or cheap software that allows you to tidy up the photos on your computer and is highly recommended for modern digital photography. Have a play with this for free browser based software:

If you want to learn more about camera functions and how adjusting shutter speed, aperture, exposure, ISO etc etc effects a picture then you'll need an SLR really, but they don't come that cheap although i'd really recommend going down the second hand route if you wanted to go a step up in your equipment.
Happy shooting, and most importantly get some of your shots up here buddy!
