I am using the Codex child theme of Rosetta. The WordPress.com associates that are helping me with my creating my first webpage are telling me that my problem with the very slow site speed is because of this theme. I am happy with the animations and effects of this theme and want to do whatever i can to keep using it. What could be the issue?

The theme is only responsible for one of the scripts listed there, while the companion plugin has two. The rest are related to the Youtube embeds and a socials plugin.
You can use the information here
to manually force all scripts to be enqueued deferred or async, but keep in mind that can break scripts functionality (when some depend on others to work). In this case you may be forced to exclude some from deferring/loading asynchronously.
