Why don't you just lie?
You can't just put some name of some school in your home town and say you taught ESL?
How could they possibly check such a thing?
I could see it being relatively easy for me to come up with some half-assed believable story since in NYC everyone knows there are tons of immigrants, but if you come from a middle-of-no-where place I could see how that might be difficult. Just lie. Say you taught in some Gulf country or something. What's the difference? From what I understand, they hand you the lesson plans anyway so its not like they'll be testing you on "well, show us your skills!"
