Just keep correcting her. Try holding her head up a little tighter, not so much that she freaks out, but enough that she knows you mean business. When she scoots away, pull her rear end back where you want it and set her up. You can also try giving her a quick tug/jerk upwards on the collar when she moves, kind of like a "pay attention to me and stand still" type of jerk. She will figure out that it isn't fun when she moves around and will learn to stand still.

As for the biting, keep your other hand away from her mouth and the hand on the collar should be above her head where she can't reach it. If she is tilting her head up towards your hand, push her nose back down. If she tries biting when you are setting her up or switching hands flicking her on the nose should help.

I always fix my goats from biting by pinching their lip or tongue. Bopping them on the nose didn't work for me either but a good pinch a few times seems to remedy it.
