I am a non-native English speaker. I was taught British English in my school days, but now I work in American English. The problem is whenever I try to write English there is a mix up of American and British spellings. I tried to correct this problem by learning the American English spelling whenever I am made aware of a word...but they are too many. Again, if I don't already know which are the words that have a different American spelling, somewhere it is going to go wrong. Please tell the most effective way to solve this problem.

You could first refer to a source of differences between them, like Comprehensive* list of American and British spelling differences or wondering Why Do Brits and Americans Spell Words Differently?. After a while, you may be able to spot common patterns, until you find that you do not need to resort to such sources.
Honestly, as a non-native speaker, I am not at this point yet.
