You might try twisting the hook slightly as you complete the draw-through, if you're not already doing that. You might be too loose, might be too tight; it's hard to say without looking at the work, but either can make you think you have to boost the yarn into place. I twist mine toward me as it comes through so the open face of the hook isn't in contact with the loop, but see what you're comfortable with. The other suggestion I'd have would be to try an in-line hook, if you haven't already. Some people don't like them, but I do. Your wood hook might already be that type..
Mostly, it's a matter of practice and getting used to the feel of crochet.
