Exclamation 8G galant 2.4L. possible head gasket oil leak

I have noticed a leak on the top half of my 2.4L. I have done some research on this but have not come to a solution. My mechanic said it was the valve cover and the bolts were hand tight so he tightened them down but I still have the cursed leak. The leak started around the timing belt and has spread all around the head witch leads me to believe it head is bad or gasket and I would like to see if anyone has anything to look into or how to fix this and how sever it is. thank you.

If itīs an old seal itīs become hard and wonīt seal properly - swap and see if it solves the problem.

I have not taken anything apart yet so idk if its a seal or the head or the gasket for the head. I have noticed that the oil is not on the head its self but below the head
