Here, "instructing in" is the proper prepositional phrase to use when referring to teaching someone how to use something.

It can be either "instructing us on" or "instructing us in" as I see it, but I lean more toward "in" in this case.

"instruct in" vs "instruct on"

Both �instruct in� and �instruct on� are correct phrases, but they are used in different contexts. �Instruct in� is used when referring to the subject or skill being taught, while �instruct on� is used when referring to the topic or content of the instruction.
