I assume `admin' is the user's name!?

I think you've got a to go a bit deeper (~ is you HOME directory,
/Users/admin/ if you're short login name is `admin'):

~/Library/texmf/tex/ for startes. If that doesn't work try one level deeper:

~/Library/texmf/tex/plain/ for TeX files and ~/Library/texmf/tex/latex/ for
LaTeX files.

Hope that helps.
Good Luck,
