    If someone tries to explain things "from scratch," there's a good chance they'll just do it the same way your books did, and you won't understand it either (like you didn't understand the books), and they'll have wasted their time.

    How about if you quote or summarize an explanation from one of your books, and tell us what you don't understand about it? Then it will be more likely that someone can say something that helps you.
