Assalamu alaykum

My teacher has told me that I have come in the habit of reading with a nasal sound when there is no ikhfaa/ghunna. I myself hear it especially when saying the letter "lam" and with the vowels. I am pretty good about pronouncing the rest of the letters, but when I make a long/short vowel often a unneeded nasal sound is heard. Is there any method to detect when this happens? What am I doing wrong that results in this?

To detect an unwanted ghunnah by yourself, close your nostrils or one of them while reading.  The sound will become suppressed when you have a ghunnah.  Of course there is an acompanying ghunnah with every and regardless of them being voweled or not.
It is not an uncommon problem for some students of the Qur'an to have a ghunnah with the . The usual cause is using only the tip of the tongue, as is used with the and not using enough of the anterior sides of the tongue. 
The anterior 1/3 of the side of the tongue should be used for the  until the sides end by meeting at the tip.  So the sides and the tip are used together in a sort of U shape. This part of the tongue then collides with the gums of the first top central eight teeth.
