Every session you teach must be treated as if you are teaching a regular class. Therefore, audio and visual distractions must not interfere with the quality of the session.
No phones, televisions, radios, loud fans, people, cars on the street, pets, or any noise should be audible in the room when you are teaching.
Also, your background must be a plain background. Most teachers will arrange their desks so their backs are facing plain walls (no doors, pictures, windows). Other teachers put up a white curtain or sheet to create a plain background. This is very important as this will facilitate a professional image of you and also allow the clients to focus on your teaching.
