    I don't see a lot of scope for further performance optimization on your website. Are you hosting with Have a look at the performance report of the hosting provider website at Their website homepage performance is similar to yours. Poor hosting resources could be a possible cause for the poor performance of your website. Have you come across examples of fast loading websites hosted by your hosting company?
