First thing I would do is get under the car and hit the starter with a hammer, not with everything you have, but not too gently either. The brushes in the starter are usually the culprit. So tap it two or three times medium hits, then try to start it. If it starts, you need a new starter. Keep the hammer handy, so you dont get stuck.
Make sure when you do hit the starter, you hit the body of it and not the wiring/electrical connections, this would break them beyond repair and possibly beyond rebuild condition too. Good luck!
