I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.
You want to know if there any way to tighten a faucet on a kitchen sink?
Yes! All faucets have to be secure, but there are as many diferent methods as there are diferent manufacturers. If you are unfamiliar with the diferent methods then you might not recognize the screw, nut, bolt or fitting when you look at it. Also, for many, a special tool is required. It might be wise to have someone local look at it.

Usually happens when the stops and not ballanced(hot and cold pressures going to the faucet). Try ajusting the stops; open more on the hot or close more on the cold.

It is a simple matter of on o-ring being out of align. REmove the valve cartridge fromthe faucet by first shutting off the water at the shut-off valves. Then remove the handle by means of loosining the set-screw on the front side of the handle. Then remove the valve cartridge by unscrewing the packing nut that surrounds the shiny stem that the handle was connected to.
Once that is removed then the cartridge will slide out, probably with a bit of force. Replace the o-rings and any other washers that may be there and coat liberally with plumbing grease before re-installing. This should fix you right up.
Bring the old cartridges, rings and washers with you to your home improvement store to make replacing easier. Should be about $15-$20.
