Contrary to what everyone believes, there is no "correct" way to shoot a Basketball. This goes for left handed and right handed people. Whatever way works for you is the correct way.

First, put your left foot slightly forward (ahead of your right) and make sure your feet are shoulder width apart. Then have your shooting hand (in your case your left) behind the ball [in front of your face] and your right hand on the side, almost making a T shape. Then bend your legs and follow through. USE YOUR LEGS NO JUST YOUR ARMS!!!

I have trouble with the same thing, i mainly go with a right handed layup or a reverse left handed. To do a left handed layup is the same way to do a right handed layup but just with the other hand. May take awhile to get used to though.
