If you are a non-native speaker, you might want to consider checking out the higher levels of Rosetta Stone for English. Obviously, you are able to speak English so the first two or three levels would be useless to you, but the higher levels, especially the fifth level, deal with perfecting grammar as well as expanding vocabulary. I have heard stories about immigrants to America speaking perfect English with perfect accents because they used that software.

Other than that, you may want to consider writing an essay, a long one, about anything that interests you, then have someone that you know is good with grammar correct it. Then, you can see where you make grammar mistakes and you will be able to avoid them in the future.

A final option is to take a community college class in English. There are plenty of classes that focus on perfecting grammar and improving speaking, writing, and reading ability.
