Our purpose is to serve. Period. We serve you, Bulbsoup Sippers, with editing and tutoring services, as well as provide notes for CSEC Literature. Bulbsoup's aim is to contribute to a literate Caribbean, which will lead to a successful Caribbean.
Bulbsoup is for students, parents and teachers. The student can gain from frequent visits to our site because we build on what is taught in the classroom. Therefore, if your teacher taught a topic that you vaguely understood, bulbsoup is your solution. If you understood, but just wanted to do extra reading for the purpose of clarification, our site is useful as well.
Parents can gain from our site as well. You can use it to educate yourselves, or simply 'brush up' on the details of topics within these two subject areas. This will arm you with the necessary information to help your child in your joint endeavor to achieve academic success.
Teachers are another target audience. You can use our site as an additional resource for your research. All texts that contribute to the articles on our Language and Literature topics are listed at the end of each page. This can lead you to texts that you might consider for further research, in addition to the information found on the site. Our collection of lesson plan templates is also a welcome sight to any teacher.

The term 'bulbsoup' comes from the imaginative mind of Pearl Reid (1919 - 1995). She was enchanted by what people of the Caribbean call 'bright children' (smart). She could be heard musing in her rocking chair - placed strategically on the veranda to get optimum 'breeze' - as one of these 'bright' children passed, that the child is as bright as the stadium bulb (this bulb lights the streets of Kingston for miles). She would often comment that these children must have drank a lot of bulb soup, while chuckling to herself. This creative, yet corny pun, is the name of our site because our aim is to enable you to feed the bright spark in you, with our brand of 'bulb soup', or information.
