Beside = next to: ‘She sat down beside me.’

Besides = in addition to; also: ‘Who did you invite besides Tom and Mary?’ ‘Besides tennis, what other games do you play?’ ‘I am too old to apply for the job. Besides, it would mean moving house.’ When you mean ‘in addition to’, use besides (WITHOUT of): ‘Who did you speak to, besides Alice?’
