This manuscript suggests an efficient scheme to find an approach for a class of differential equations arsing in the quantum calculus. The present scheme considers the solution in the form of a truncated Taylor series near zero with unknown coefficients. Then, by placing this approach into the problem and collocating the relation which is obtained at some nodes, a system of algebraic equations is achieved. The solution of this algebraic system is the unknown coefficients of the series. The ability of present method is examined by some examples.
