So what is it really that has brought you to this point, where you have to deal with this? Are you afraid that you can't accomplish your assignments without him? Are you scared that you wouldn't be able to find a better partner for school projects? Are you afraid of telling him what bothers you about him because he might not like you anymore?
What is it really? Look within, figure out why you are choosing this situation, and learn your lesson.
I like sebzzz's attitude. This tells a great deal about your leadership traits. Think about the value of stewardship. Be patient and try to teach and help him become a better person. Being a role model is the first and simplest thing you can do without offending the person.
The sink or swim attitude is a thing of the past
