Beginner: Rigging line to reel

Hope it's ok to post a beginners question here, didn't see a beginners section on this board. I just got my first rod/reel combo and was rigging the line to my reel. I've already put on the backing, fly line, and leader, but I'm stuck at the tippet?? I'm basically using websites to learn which type knots to use. What's the difference between a tippet and a leader? Are they the same? My starter rig came w/ backing, fly line, and 4x tapered leader. It didn't come w/ a tippet? From reading some websites it shows you step by step, and refers to fly line to leader, leader to tippet, and tippet to fly. Do I need a tippet, or can I tie my fly directly to the leader?
