Whenever I try to do the backhand or forehand push, it goes high and either bounces on my table twice or just completely flies off-course. Any tips?
The push or chop can be an awkward stroke to start with. Try to use mainly your fingers and wrist and lower arm. If the ball is going too high you need to experiment with the angle of your bat first. Try facing the bat a little more to the net rather than the ceiling. It could also be that you are getting a flat contact with the ball rather than a brushing contact.
Try both of these things and most importantly keep trying the stroke and soon you will find it starting to go a little lower.
