How about a bit more information.
How big is the area?
What type of tile?
Where are you? (Freeze/thaw and all that stuff)
How long are you planning on waiting before you tile?

You should wait at least 28 days for the concrete to cure properly before tiling. Please give us more information, pictures would also be a big help so we can assist you better.
