I used this before I started my comp sci classes so I would be at least a bit familiar with the concepts. He is pretty good at explaining things. His tutorials should be able to help you with that question.
Also, I echo the sentiments of EXTomar, is Visual Studio mandatory? That seems really unnecessary for the question you are doing. We were told specifically not to use it for my classes this year. Code::Blocks, QT Creator, or Eclipse would be much easier to use for that type of work (I would recommend the first two over the last one I listed, that one can be a bit of a pain to install because you have to install a bunch of other stuff and can be finicky. The first two set everything up automatically).
