It sounds as if you are not anticipating the beat!
Your reaction time is off. To give you an example.
Have you ever seen people dance, and they look akward because of their lack of coordination?
Do you know why?
They are not anticipating the beat/pulse of the rhythmic pattern.
They hear the beat and react later!
When counting, you must anticipate the beat. YOU NEED TO START COUNTING OUT LOUD and USE A METRONOME.
This should help!
