When I was a kid, I was the same way. I could crossover to the left, but felt uncomfortable to the right. I had lessons and I was able to fix it with a lot of one leg skating exercises.

Get some speed and lift your left skate off the ice and glide only on your right skate, then lean on your outside edge of the right skate and you will begin to glide clockwise. Do this for a while and get comfortable on that edge, then begin bringing your left leg over and practice pushing off. Just remember, you can go slow, make big circles, and do not be afraid to fall. Focus on one edge at a time.
