Here is the materials tab: enter image description here

Note: If you can't see it there, hover over the tabs and scroll with the Middle Mouse Button.

Also be sure that you have a mesh selected, if you don't blender will not show the materials tab.

Almost any video tutorial should show you were that is, so I'd recommend you research some more.
