how to I set apps to only use certain wifi connections and not others?

HI,
I have been using Wi-Fi tethering from phone to get data to my tablet. The problem is too many items on my tablet use the Wi-Fi data while using the phone as a tether and it is eating up my data minutes.

Tablet: I would like a way to set up the parameters for many of the apps to NOT use Wi-Fi from my phone.... but that it is OK to use the Wi-Fi from home.

Or at least not in the background. Is this possible?

Phone: it would be nice to have the tethering cut off automatically when I get home.

Lastly: I am not interested in rooting the phone or any alternative OS varients.

The phone is using the latest 6 and the tablet is using the latest 7.
Note 4 and Tab A 10.1
