Again, with regards to the "acting like you're going to break", you may have good results by saying "I'd like to work on taking falls from a little harder throw; would you mind?"
It can also help to point out that being indecisive about the throw actually makes the ukemi more difficult. The throw doesn't need to be "hard," but it does need to be firm.
