The gaskets may not be at fault; the first time the valve cover was removed it was probably damaged by an impatient mechanic.
Most covers are sheet metal and the gaskets have an ugly tendency to get sticky over time making removal very difficult.
An inexperienced or sloppy mechanic can easy damage the edge of the cover causing a permanent distortion that a gasket replacement cannot correct.
I hope you have correctly identified the source of the leak since a warped cylinder head can also cause oil loss but that would be from the junction of the cylinder and block.
That would be much more expensive to correct than replacing a damaged valve cover.

You have to remove the spark plugs cables and remove the four nuts that you see when the cables are removed.
When the four nuts are removed, simply raise the valuve cover. When replacing the gasket, make sure you get the gromets as well. Those sometimes get worn or crack since they are more exposed than the value cover gasket. Make sure that you clean the cover from oil and replace the gasket with no use of silicon.

SOURCE: valve cover gasket leaking
When you buy the valve cover set, it will include the spark plug well "O" rings. Simply remove the valve cover and on the underside of the valve cover, you'll see the "O" rings that need replaced and you'll see exactly how the valve cover gasket itself fits.
