landing on my back in forward roll

I'm new to Aikido (2 months) and I really like it.However like alot of people I'm finding I have trouble with my rolls, mostly forward. I hear alot of people have trouble falling on their shoulder. I seem to go crooked and then hit my back. People at my dojo say I'm coming untucked but I'm not aware how to fix it. All I do know is not being able to roll properly is causing me to dread going to class. I try practicing at home but it really hurts and I'm afraid if I continue doing it wrong I'll fear the pain and then have to deal with that.If anyone has any suggestions for me I would really appreciate it.

Thanks so much, Michelle Heer
