Tethering is where you use the laptop's connection to connect the phone to the Net. In the same area of Settings in the phone, you should also find Hotspot and that's what works the other way round by allowing the laptop to use a network you create on the phone.

Make sure you set a strong password for that network if you're using it in a public place - Hotspots are often targetted by folks looking to connect for free and you could end up sharing more than just the Internet connection.
