You're justing learning, patience and practice
You might want to see a copy of Gordon Rathburn's 12 slalom drills. There use to be some on youtube. It helped me. Builds confidence and the pull out helps with the wake crossing.
good luck, don't rush it or you will pick up bad habits or get injured and loose some of your skiing season. I've done it more then a few seasons trying to get one more buoy.
