You don’t have to give him access to your own account, all you have to do is to make the second account you created an Administrator…

As long as you do not give him cPanel access you should be fine, you can use the datebase to make a new user or change the password etc
For added comfort, when I offer my services, I offer an optional Teamviewer session in which the client can monitor what is being done. I would not recommend creating a secondary admin for ANY reason without knowing exactly what they are doing.
Please be weary of this, as a seller could download your site’s code and potentially sell it to a hacker if there is customer information, or edit your .htaccess file to allow a backdoor for future use.
dont give out any info that can compromise your website and mysql database.
