I just started knitting too and I had this problem when I was trying to practice the purl stitch. I figured out what I was doing wrong by watching this website's video, but it is hard to explain how to fix it. When I was doing the purl, I looped it through the already made stitch, looped the working yard and when I moved it to the back of the needle in my right hand, I was "grabbing too much of the yarn/stitches on the left handed needle" before I slipped it off the end of the left needle. I don't know if that makes any sense to you, but I think that is the problem you might be having based on your description. To fix it I had to just push my right handed needle straight back without picking up any extra yarn.
