    Can anyone help me by describing what is the difference between "sometime" and "sometimes"?

    NOT A TEACHER.

    I can't explain the difference (in fact, I'm not convinced there is one, at least as far as meaning goes), but I can give you a couple of examples.

    "We should go to Atlanta sometime."

    "I sometimes forget to lock the house door."
