    Nearly :yes: The molecule is an amine and as the only functional group you write it as the suffix -amine (instead of the prefix amino-) along with it's position on the chain.

    2,2-dimethylbutylamine?
    That's a valid name but probably not the systematic IUPAC name that's typically asked for at A-level. Then again this thread has no label, so I can't tell what level it is for :p:
