    My teacher/lecturer says that I should analyse as my essays are too narrative and I don't know what he means

    What she means is that you are probably just giving an overview of events such as describing what happened and where. To analyse and improve your essays you need to suggest how events came to lead onto one another and suggest reasons why they occurred. In questions where your opinion is asked don't be too neutral, keep it balanced but make sure that you are perceptive and give you own reasons.
