I don’t exactly know what to do from here. I checked many other tutorials but they didn’t seem to help. Can anyone here show me how I can fix this problem?

Also best tutorial for Xamarin installation on Windows is Xamarin official one from their documentation, here you can find all info that you need.

Android SDK (Note: On this page you can download url for Android SDK)

However if you follow the official Xamarin tutorial, from that I provided above I think that you will have everything that you need.
