There isn't much point trying to do pull-ups at the end of your workout when you're fatigued so try doing a few sets at the start of your workout as part of your warm up.

I feel your pain...

On a thread related note, you could probably work the assisted and jumping pullups til you can do kipping, and then work the kipping up into some higher reps or with a little weight, so that you get used to lifting your whole bodyweight up.

I'm trying to get my mom to be able to do a pullup and this is the approach im taking.
