How to tune your instrument   Be sure to download a tuner on your phone or tablet.  There are plenty of free ones.  I recommend Instuner.  Be careful when you tune.  Tune every day that you practice.  Try to make any changes with the fine tuners first.  Only use the pegs if you absolutely have to and be very careful.
