Inverted rudder corrections drove me nuts til I learned the "look at the inboard wingtip, push the rudder stick the way you want itto go" rule.
This evolved into "look at whatever's closest to you and push the stick the way you want it to go". You're looking at the nose as the airplane is coming at you, the inboard wingtip as it passes, the tail as it's going away.
I also 'push the tail' when looking at the bottom of the airplane in a vertical line, like after the roll in our 'pull, half roll, push' humpty.
And always remember, when rolling out from inverted the rudder moves the same way as the ailerons.
