    have you brought the "live" yarn to the front? then you insert the right needle into the stitch from the right and in front of the left needle. wrap, pull through.

    also, this site might be helpful:

    athena scooped me on that link, but if you get two stitches for every purl, you may not be bringing the yarn tail to the front of your work and you're doing what's known as a Yarn Over, when you leave the yarn in the back and purl and it creates a double stitch. I'd check out the purl videos that might be helpful

    good luck!
