My first thought is when you insert your hook and pull up another loop, you are pulling it up too short or too tight. That loop should be long enough (spanning from the row 4 below), so the top of the finished treble comes out even with the sc of the current row. The long tr will lie "on top" of the fabric, covering the intervening rows of sc and giving a dimensional texture.

"Miss" is another term for "skip". When you do the long tr, miss/skip (don't work) the sc on the previous row, which will lie behind the long tr. This seems obvious to me (I just worked a long tr; if I worked the sc also, I would increase by a stitch), but patterns usually state this, just in case. If you already know which is the next sc you need to work into and your stitch count is remaining stable, you're doing it right.
