Help removing valve covers

So I'm replacing my glow plugs, and I can't get the valve covers off for the life of me. The bolts holding the valve cover are super tight, and I can't seem to get them to budge. I'm using a regular socket and putting everything I've got into it and they won't move. Any suggestions? I'm about to give up and pay a lot of money to have a mechanic do it.
