'To tell someone off' means to scold or reprimand them. For example. A child breaks a glass because he is running with it in his hand and he drops it, so his mothers tells him off/ scolds him for doing this. People are usually angry when they tell someone off.

I told him off= I gave him a piece of my mind= I told him he was wrong = I told him exactly what I thought about his actions.
