I have a notebook with a linux system. This notebook is online through an android phone via wifi tethering. Now on my windows system I want to administrator that notebook over the internet. What would be a secure way to do this? In short:

Windows-> Internet -> android phone w/ hotspot -> notebook connected to phone

I could use a linux in a vm if that would make things easier.

As long as you are fine with doing administration via command line, install putty on your Windows computer, and use it as an ssh client for the Linux computer. That is a secure and encrypted connection, and it doesn't really matter how the Linux computer gets onto the internet. No need to use a linux vm.
