Hi this is vennkateshh. I would prefer always manual tuning by matching string by string. If one can experience that two strings sound as single tone while tuning the guitar, that is all he got tuning the guitar manually.

If the beginner has a good ear for music, you can teach him/her to tune by ear. Or else just let them use a tuner for a while.

These days, I use calculators to do my sums. Earlier I used to calculate on paper by writing numbers and doing my counts. The earlier practice kept my brains exercised. But now, I am growing dumb with these gadgets. All I mean to say is gadgets impedes your thinking process. When I tune with an electronic tuner major part of my concentration is towards the indicator lights that go up and down as I adjust string tension. My ears are not fully participating. I am totally dependant on visual accuracy. It helps, as it is accurate, easy to use, less of hassle...but Am I learning anything? But When I manually tune, my ears, my eyes, my mind, responses, understanding, and everything is in play. I am submerged into the feel of sound and I know how to manipulate to reach accuracy - I am truly learning music in itself. In the end, If I know how to tune by myself I am not dependant on others or other things. Lastly, I prefer devices for tuning only when my surrounding is noisy and I cannot get the subtle sound in my ear.

Oh yes, when tuning the sixth string, the beginner has made sure that the sound is 440Hz which is a standard for the chromatic scale. This indeed needs vast experience to recognize the frequency and the beginner may require a tuner but should try to get away with it as he improves with practice

Well, as someone has already mentioned, manual tuning is possible but that is only recommended for an ad-hoc plus-minus 5 to 10 cents tuning (and not for an absolute beginner), but for perfect tuning, a digital tuner is highly recommended. Thanks!
