Take it to a good transmission shop that you trust to be honest. The clutch is probably not stopping the input shaft spinning enough to enter reverse. Here is my test: Put the transmission in neutral with the engine running and let out the clutch. Press the clutch all the way to the floor (important) and after a few seconds put it in 1st gear. Did it go in without any hesitation? If it hesitates then the clutch is not stopping the input shaft spinning in a reasonable time, but the syncronizer is stopping it. Continue testing each gear, neutral to a gear, until you get to reverse. If reverse scratches or moves the car some when you enter it then the clutch is not working properly. The key to this is a good honest transmission shop who will only replace the clutch and not the transmission and then tell you it needs a clutch also while he's in there.
