Amirah holds a deep interest in students with special needs, having worked as a behaviour therapist for children with autism prior to helping children with dyslexia. She joined DAS in 2016 as an Educational Therapist, and then later DAI in 2019 as a Specialist Tutor. She teaches literacy and mathematics to students with dyslexia and other SpLDs in both group and individual settings. She believes that every child deserves the chance to find their own meaning of success and not what society expects from them. Her journey with DAS is filled with stories of students discovering their potential and achieving success at a pace that fits them.

Amirah has been continuously expanding her skillset and learn from her experienced colleagues. She had earned her Diploma in Educational Therapy and PGC in Specific Learning Differences while continuing to upgrade her skills with numerous courses and training - helping her earn the PCC in IEP, Mathematics Support and Higher-Order Mathematical Skills. She also completed her Certificate in Virtual Specialization to cater to students who opt for online tutoring. Her passion for what she does extends beyond the classroom as she advocates via educating fellow colleagues, parents and the masses through the webinars she conducted titled Online Tutoring for SpLD and Supporting Co-Morbidities of SpLD in the Classroom.

Amirah enjoys being around nature as it is a way of keeping herself grounded and focused on her purpose. Quiet time and family bonding time are equally cherished as she believes these are the foundation that cultivates exemplary personal values. These values then complement and enrich her students' learning experience.
