Practise is definitely the answer, but I’d suggest easing off the amount of pressure and number of strokes you’re using when burnishing.  Two to three firm burnisher strokes should be all you need to use.  Aim to create a smaller hook, as the hook should be barely perceptable.  This and scraping diagonally with the grain should help reduce your present problem, but try not to be too critical of yourself or your work.  Technique and accuracy come with practise and you’ll soon overcome the present plateau. 😉
