thanks alot for giving me those sites but i already know this stuff. They don't teach how to read an aritmetic problem so its confusing to me what to do with them, when sometimes its so obvious i just need someone to actually explain it to me in a diffent ways, that i might be able to understand and it helps me alot more for a real person to explain it to me in a way they think i might be able to understand it.

I understand your predicament. Is there a particular problem you need such help with? You will learn to turn word problems into mathematical statements (equations) that can be solved, with practice.
