“Glenn has been a terrific chess instructor for my boys now ages 9 and 11. He started teaching them when they were young and I believe that the problem-solving skills of chess have enhanced their math abilities. Glenn provides them with personal attention and has kept them interested in the game all these years. He consistently teaches them new techniques and gives them the confidence and knowledge to be able to play and win in tournaments.
I highly recommend Glenn if you want your children to learn, enjoy and excel in chess.”

Princeton’s Fourth Chess Day to Take Place on Library Plaza


National Chess Master Glenn Bady returns to Princeton and will take on 20 challengers for a Simultaneous  Chess event.

Glenn started teaching chess in 1996, Philadelphia and surrounding communities.   He would teach children as young as 4 years old.   Glenn’s theory on teaching the little ones is to use a lot of excitement and slight of hand,  as a magician would do in her performance.
