Teng was chosen by the dean of the Oberlin Conservatory to appear on Italian television to promote Oberlin in Italy. He is the recipient of the 2018 Outstanding Young Alumni Award at Oberlin College and Conservatory, which recognizes young alumni who have distinguished themselves in their professional careers and their service to humanity.

A rising pedagogue of his generation, Teng joined the violin and chamber music faculty of the Music Institute of Chicago in 2013, the faculty of the Montecito International Music Festival in 2014, the faculty of DePaul University School of Music in 2018, and the faculty of the Pacific Music Institute in 2020.

He has given masterclasses and coachings at the Taipei American School, Conservatório Villa-Lobos in Rio de Janeiro, Eastman Pre-College, and Lawrence University, as well as classes in Canada, the Philippines, Greece, and China. In the fall of 2016, Teng embarked on a tour to Cebu, Philippines with his students, where he gave masterclasses and concerts. A similar tour in the fall of 2018 took Teng and his students to Thessaloniki, Greece, and in fall 2019 they toured San Marino and Italy and were featured on San Marino national television.
