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

Do you have calculus yet?
