You're on the right track. Snatch push press, overhead squat and snatch balance will help you build the overhead strength and confidence. Aim at this point to be able to lift more in all of those than you can snatch.

Then work tall snatches, high-hang or high block snatches in the mean time, but never exceed weights at which you can no longer do it correctly - use pulls and the above exercises to build the strength, and use these exercises to ingrain the movement.
