Unhappy Stuck in first/second gear (Rough shifting)

6 speed manual 2009 GTI.

Recently I've experienced my gears getting stuck. Going from first to second and sometimes second to third. It only happened a couple of times but now its becoming more frequent. I've messed around with shifting at higher rpms, getting on the gas(driving it faster rather than traffic speed) and such. Only luck I've had is when I get on it and shift at 3000 rpms it goes into second a lot smoother. When it does get stuck I can either force it into second/third or I wait until the rpms drop to 1000 and it then shifts easily into the next gear.

Not too sure what it is, my local vw mechanic couldn't reproduce the problem when I took it in a couple weeks ago. But now its happening a lot more.

Any ideas on what it could be?
