Exclamation Ignition/starter problem. NEED HELP ASAP

I have a 1993 Celica GT 2.2. Basically what happens is when I turn the key in the ignition, there is a loud click as if something is trying to work, but it won't even turn over. For a while, it would just take turning the key a whole bunch of times before it would eventually turn over and start. For the past week however this has ceased entirely and I have had to drive my grandmother everywhere in my other vehicle (she has been using the Celica). I'm still pretty new to working on my own cars and simply don't even know where to start. Anyone had something similar happen and know how to fix it? All help is appreciated thx

the loud click sound is the starter solenoid. If the battery and cables connections are good I would replace the starter.
