Hi, I'm Dan from the UK and I need some help

I've got 2 guitars which I got for free, but they are horribly out of tune. So just tune them up you might say? I've tried and failed on the first guitar and ended up snapping a string and taking it to the face! I want to have my second guitar tuned before I attempt to replace the strings on the first, tho I'm slightly concerned about the imprints the snapped string left in the guitar.

I know the note order thanks to the 'Even Average Dog's Get Bones Eventually' but my problem comes that I'm now very nervous when tuning the strings, especially when I don't know which way I should be going (tightening, or loosening) - some of my strings are worlds away on my guitar tuner than what they should really be!

I'll do a quick go on my guitar tuner now and give you a list of the notes I'm getting from my guitar and hopefully you guys can tell me if I need to tighten or loosen the string to get it in range.

Here are images of the guitar tuner for all 6 of my strings - 1 being the highest, 6 being the lowest

Apologies for what must seem like an incredibly stupid question but since taking a string to the face I'm wary of turning the winders


PS. If anyone knows of a guitar tutor in Salford/Manchester, England then please let me know. Have tried contacting all the top results in google and some from gumtree but haven't got anywhere.
