i always had that problem too

you must stay low and crank that arm enough so the other arm stays away from you

here's an example:
Yes. Notice how Simon turns sharply after spining his uke and throws him in the reverse direction (with hands no higher than forehead). The turn is actually optional. It is much more severe on uke, but you could continue in a straight line.

Oh and with beginners, ukemi from shihonage is somnething you actually have to teach, usually by doing it yourself as instructor. It is not something they should be left to pick up for themselves after having learned ushiro ukemi.

Best regards,
