It was not easy for me at the beginning because I forgot the basics of almost everything. What helped me much wasn't the hard work but the self-confidence it built in me.

Just saying since you have the will to learn you can make it. At first, I used to spend hours everyday on the basic ones to understand. What I am trying to say is this "start where you think you have to start since you are your own teacher". It would also be good if you can use a program that can guide you like which part of maths you need to know that would help you in your studies work or business then you go for it.
Thanks for the reply.

I am in the same situation, I have not taken a math class in several years, and have forgotten of it.

I ended up buying a cheap book "basic math and pre algebra for dummies ", and I am about half way through it.
It's been nice to go over the basics again, and get me back in the proper mindset. Hopefully by restarting, and finding out where the gaps in my knowledge are, I will be better prepared for the more advanced math soon.

I agree with what you said, having a desire and a passion to learn, will help me become my own teacher.
