Bullies are bullying a lot of time because they have their own issues. Try to figure out what that might be, then try and help them with it. If you notice they are bad in math, offer to help them in some round about way. And so on.....

Ive always been told that you can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar. So always be kind, even when the person is being a sour puss.

If the kindness doesn't work (and sometimes It won't) evade the bully as much as you possibly can. Re-evaluate.
