I had a similar leak. Replaced the valve cover gaskets. It was the rear cam seal. I replaced it when I did the timing belt.

how hard is it to replace that rear cam seal? do I have to take off the oil pump to get to it?

You need to check the gaskets Bad Venge mentioned first. They are the most common cause. Cam seals need a good mechanic or someone mechanically inclined. If you have never changed a timing belt or done a major mechanical job on a car, you need to hire a pro.
