“"Men have become tools of their tools — Henry David Thoreau"”— Professor Chavez in class
Chavez comes off as a stern, but well-intentioned teacher when he is first introduced. While Jane is used to being favoured in academic contexts, Chavez imparts a more independent demeanor that is perhaps characteristic for graduate college, and teaches Jane to veer off the path of definitive answers.
He eventually, after receiving a text with Jane's various colourful nicknames for him, agrees to become Jane's advisor and later, by trickery, inspires her to harness her skill set when it comes to writing, inferring that Jane sometimes can be stuck in her own point of view.
