In this article, an attempt has been made to explain and model the Taylor table method in Python. A step-by-step algorithm has been developed, and the methodology has been presented for programming. The developed TT_method() function has been tested with the help of four problems, and accurate results have been obtained. The developed function can handle any number of stencils and is capable of producing the results instantaneously. This will eliminate the task of hand calculations and the use can directly focus on the problem solving rather than working hours to descretize the problem.
