Really Easy! 1)Try on the jeans and find the point on the inside of your leg at which you would like to begin the tapering and mark it with and pin.2) take off the jeans and turn them inside out(you can also try them on inside out and mark them this way( it may actually be easier to mark them) 3) mark a straight line with pins or colored pencil on wrong side of jeans straight down ( make sure that there is enough room to allow you to pull them over you foot after sewing(never fear if you sew them to narrow you can remove the stitching 4) sew on this line on the wrong side 5) try on. 6) if this line works for you then cut off the excess fabric leaving about 1/8" to 1/4" of fabric outside of the seam(wrong side of jeans)  You've successfully tapered your jeans.  I have done this on quite a few pairs of my own jeans finding tapered jeans these days is difficult, they usually fit great until you get to the boot leg.
