Prepositions are always followed by a "noun", never followed by a verb.
• Noun (cat, money, love)
• Proper Noun (name) (London, Tom)
• Pronoun (you, her, us)
• Noun Group (my first house)
• Gerund (swimming)

Here is a list of the most common prepositions of movement, with example sentences for each one:
across: movement from one side to the other side of something
around: movement passing something in a curved route, not going through it
away from: indicating the point where a movement begins
down: movement from a higher point to a lower point of something
from: indicating the point where a movement begins
into: movement to an enclosed space; movement resulting in physical contact
off: movement away from (and often down from) something
on to, onto: movement to the top surface of something
out of: indicating the enclosed space where a movement begins
over: movement above and across the top or top surface of something
past: movement from one side to the other side of something
to: movement in the direction of something
through: movement in one side and out of the other side of something
towards | toward (mostly AmE): movement in the direction of something
under: movement directly below something
up: movement from a lower point to a higher point of something
