Is it the actual skating backwards that you're struggling with? Or, are you struggling with just the transitions? Are you OK once you're turned around? If it's just the transitions, is there a place at home you can practice them? Do you have a room with a nice hardwood floor? Smooth concrete garage floor?

My daughter is comfortable once she's turned around, but she struggles on transitions. So, I have her practicing them at home on the hardwood floor. She's also skating backwards slowly through the house, from room to room, which is helping her get comfortable turning in both directions. It seems to be working for her. Sometimes it's a lot easier when there's no one watching.
