Tough one, especially as he changes his mind after he publishes the Tractatus and rejects ideas about language describing reality. It will also depend on what detail you need to know his work in for A level/uni.
Really really short version: "the meaning of a word is its use in the language"!
Otherwise check out the Stanford Encyclopaedia of Philosophy: https://plato.stanford.edu/entries/wittgenstein/ and the IEP: https://www.iep.utm.edu/wittgens/
Existential comics also feature Wittgenstein, but use it as a source at your own risk : http://existentialcomics.com/
