I know very little about General Relativity, I don't know what a tensor is
and don't know any of the mathematics involved (even though I know pretty much all of the equations in Special Relativity.) Could someone please explain tensors to me, or point me to a link that does? And where can I go to find a mathematical explanation of GR?

You may find this heavy going, but you can get some ideas as to the answer to both of your questions at
http://math.ucr.edu/home/baez/gr/gr.html Do you have calculus yet?
