I am not a tier 2 user but there should be plenty of help in the help files which can be found here:

The Documentation is very good. This is where I turn to for help first.

Although it dosnt describe everything. It will get you started. When you get stuck on a project just ask on the forums.
A lot of people are willing to help. This is a very good community.

Teach Yourself Game Programming for Android and Windows

Is a very good book for people new to AGK.

Have a good look around the forums, I have only had AppGameKit for a short period and am using tier 1 with only having done a bit of C/C++ many years ago and then I wasn't very good at it.
However I found that when I had a go at tier 2 it wasn't too difficult to do.
As a test I took a tier 1 basic program in AppGameKit and cut and pasted it into visual C++ then changed the code line by line. I did get some of the syntax etc wrong but the forum community came to the rescue with sites to use for assistance and with the few mistakes I made.

Check out this post to see some code side by side in tier 1 and 2 and also help sites. You will notice the code is not too different.

Hope this helps a bit
