I do not quote the message of cdetrio@gmail.com here, but maybe the difficulty you have with Calculus understanding is dependant on not fully mastering elementary and intermediate algebra. You need much skill with algebra to understand some/many proofs that you may find. The appearance of proving and problem solving is that of moving symbols around, but proving and solving really are applying basic properties about numbers and mathematical statements (equations and inequalities).
I would suggest reveiwing intermediate algebra and trigonometry.
