HS work. Make these way solid. Simple holds, pirouettes and presses.

Play around on your tramp with stuff like back drop to stomach drop and 1/2 turns ( cruises ) back drop 1/2 to stomach from the tramp or back drop pop to stand 1/2 turn to stomach, back drop to stomach. All the kind of trampoline body awarness stuff. Back pullovers ( like a peanut roll ).

Condition and stretch. If you are already flexible enough, condition more. Strength helps so much in learning new skills whereas not being strong will just get you stuck at the same skill forever.

Work your basics. Lots of conditioning and stretching. Figure out what your problem areas are, whats keeping you from moving up, and talk to your coach! Find out what they think you need to do to move up, and then work on that.

I wouldn't work on skills on tramp at home because you won't have the trained eye of a coach to watch for bad habits developing. Plus, do you really want to chance falling off tramp and missing a couple of months of gym? However, condition and stretch! Do a lot of handstand work. If you can get a floor bar, put it on the floor and practice handstands and pirouettes. You can even practice 1/2 handstands on it with your feet on a bed and you're in a piked position. This is good practice for getting over any fears of leaning over the bar for cast handstands. Just remember to keep your ribs in, hips rolled under, and head neutral. I don't allow any drills other than handstand work at home because I don't want injuries or bad habits to develop.
