Professor Robin Schwartz aka Robin the Math Lady’s mission is to help people learn and enjoy Math to build confidence and create opportunities. Robin tutors Math one-on-one, teaches Math in her own classroom, provides Math support to classroom/student teachers and presents workshops to teachers, students and parents. Robin has 17 years of tutoring and 15 years of classroom experience. Her academic credentials include the Math intensive fields of Electrical Engineering (B.S., Syracuse) and Finance (M.B.A. , NYU) as well as a high school diploma from Stuyvesant High School.
After working on Wall Street and in the high-tech field of electronics, Robin went back to her first love, Math! This was foreshadowed by correctly and creatively answering a (third round!) Finance job interview question: “What’s 24 x 12?”.
Since 2000, Robin has been tutoring Math at all levels including SAT/ACT prep, SHSAT, homework help, Regents/exam studying as well as college/grad school classes and homeschoolers.

As a Field Supervisor for Math Education undergraduate and graduate programs in and around NYC, Robin mentors and observes student and working teachers for CMSV, Touro College, NYU and Teachers College/Columbia University in many middle and high public NYC schools as well as parochial schools.
