I have been able to pretty much melee Amarak to death by myself when my team gets wiped out in the first thirty seconds. It usually works if you do not get assimilated.
The one strategy I found was to have a science officer, preferably a Vulcan or another race that can do a lot of melee damage equip a physician kit and just hammer away at him while the rest of the team stays back and shoots him. Have tacticals throw grenades and and engineers plant transphasic bombs. So long as everyone stays apart, you can usually get him down in health quickly. If people get too close together, he kills everyone with that electricity bolt.
Then, when he starts throwing up the shields, I think it is possible that everyone can melee him, but I am not sure. Either way, that strategy usually works on the first time on normal.
