oil leak help

Hello all,
I bought a jeep a little bit ago for what I thought was a good deal
Today I opened up the hood again and saw oil pooling around the engine
I am no mechanic, so if anyone can help tell me what might be wrong I would greatly appreciate it. Also it is only the front of the engine, the back is dry around it.

Try the simple thing first. Tighten the valve cover bolts up a little more. But don't kill them just a little bit more and see if tat works first.
