This is commonly caused by over watering. When you go to water, feel the top inch or so of the soil. If it is dry, water the plant, if it is not, do not water the plant. This will ensure you are watering to the plant's needs. If you feel that you have not been over watering your plant and would like additional reasons as to why it may be turning yellow, this article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/environmental/plant-leaves-turn-yellow.htm

When pothos get yellow leaves, it's almost always because the plant is too dry. When they are too wet, you see browning first on the leaf stems, then on the tips of the leaves, then the brown starts to extend down the sides of the leaves. If the overwatering goes on for a long time, you will also see the new leaves start to get smaller. Investigate the moisture content of the soil by testing it at least 1/2 way down the pot. You can find some tips on checking soil moisture at my YouTube channel http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YBBh0RPPqu0&feature=plcp
