2 + 2 is 4, - 1 that's 3 quick maffs

No but seriously. Start from the first thing you have fully mastered. What topics do you currently feel comfortable on? It doesn't have to be anything difficult either. Let me give you an example. Mastering all those little things like factorising, simplifying, etc will help for let's say long division. Once you master long division, that can help you with certain integrals. And so on. You have to master all the little steps first.

You could try hiring a private home tutor who could help you grasp the basics and so forth. A lot of students do it and there's absolutely no shame in it! Just make sure you're comfortable with your tutor and they understand the level of patience needed to help you. A good experienced tutor knows that without saying though.
