In this paper, Taylor expansion has been used for solving non-linear Volterra integral equations (VIEs) of the second kind. This method allows us to overcome the difficulty caused by integrals and non-linearity; also, it has more precise and rapidly convergent to the exact solution. Two examples are presented for illustrate the performance of this method.
