Pretty sure I'm knuckling

During my class tonight, I was watching my feet trying to figure out what's my problem with getting over my box. I'm almost there, but I can't quite get that platform flat on the ground. While doing this, I noticed that I am pretty sure I am knuckling in my shoes. I feel like my toes are curling in my shoes, and my feet /look/ arched yet I'm still not on my box where I'm supposed to be.

Does anyone have any good advice for breaking the habit? I was trying to look at some stuff on google and all the advice there is "stop curling your toes" which really isn't that helpful. I know that's what I need to do, it's just a matter of figuring out what's the best way to train my body out of the bad habit and into the good one.

Talk to your teacher: we don't have pictures to see what's going on, and you sound unsure of what's going on, so the best thing to do here is go to your teacher and say "I like that I'm not really on my platform and I've been trying to fix it but can't quite figure out how.
