I'm learning LaTeX to typeset some documents. I hope someone here could help me.

How do I go on adding a space in the List of Figures and List of Tables.

I'm using \listoffigures and \listoftables to generate these two pages.

Here is how the List of Tables page looks like:

As you can see the title "LIST OF TABLES" is almost aligned to the page number x.

What I want is to have something that looks like this:

I want to add several spaces between the page number and the title. I want to do this for the List of Figures page and the List of Tables page and for the Table of Contents as well.

I hope someone could help. Thank you!
