Sounds like there is a bad valve cover gasket which may even be able to tighten this. Try putting your hand around the valve cover side and back on both sides and determine if there is any oil on it. If this is not clean then thats where the leak is at you will need to try and tighten if that doesnt stop the leak then you will have to replace the gaskets. Let me know if you have questions. Thanks!
