"Because" is a conjunction and is followed by a subject + verb. (He is here BECAUSE Mary told him to come) "Because of" is a preposition and is followed by a verb+ING or a noun. (I couldn´t sleep because of the noise) (He arrived late to work because of watching tv all night long) (Because of the noise, I couldn´t sleep) (Because of watching tv all night long, He arrived late to work)
