Another viewpoint:
The plane of the Sun's equator is tilted by just a few degrees to the plane of the Earth's orbit.
So, the Earth revolves around the Sun roughly in the plane containing the Sun's equator.
The Earth certainly does not orbit over the Poles of the Sun.
Whether Earth orbits to "left or right" depends on the how you look at the orbit.
Also, it's better to use the words "clockwise" and "counterclockwise" (anticlockwise).
When viewed from above the Earth's North Pole, the Earth revolves around the Sun in a counterclockwise direction.
