    Your certificates should make this clear. If you have the following:

    Commercial Pilot
    – Airplane Single- & Multi-engine Land
    – Airplane Single-engine Sea

    Flight Instructor
    – Airplane Single-engine

    … then you can legally instruct in any single-engine airplane in which you are also appropriately rated as a pilot.

    Not to be snarky, but as an instructor you might want to review your privileges and limitations at your next flight review, if not sooner.
