Here is a table with the prepositions and grammatical causes used with them, as well as a bit of explanations: (https://en.m.wikibooks.org/wiki/German/Grammar/Prepositions_and_Postpositions)

And here are even better examples: (https://yesgerman.com/learn-german/lesson-20-dative-und-accusative-prepositions/)

Can you explain what a postposition is?


Postposition goes after the word it modifies - in contrast to prepositions, which are placed before it.

Some of them can be placed both after and before the word:
PERSON nach = nach PERSON - according to person

Here's a post that explains it well :)


For a starting point, probably this Memrise course: https://www.memrise.com/course/61415/100-german-verbs-with-prepositions/ that gives you a bunch in flashcard format.
