Here are the steps to remove the rear wheel; you can find more detailed instructions and maybe pics/videos online.
1) Shift bike into smallest rear sproclet (cog) and smallest dront sprocket (chainring).
2) Open rear brake's quick release. Different styles have different quick releases. You should not have to loosen any bolts (i.e. where the cable is bolted) unless there is no quick release. Alternatively, if the tire is deflated, then it should clear the brake pads without opening the quick release or disconnecting the cable.
3) Loosen rear axle nuts or open quick release.
4) Rotate rear derailleur back so that there isn't any chain below the cog and the wheel should fall out.
