I am not an expert to suggest methods to improve verbal, but there is one method that will work for you. In SC, try to find as many errors as possible and that too without timing yourself. That worked for me so I am pretty sure that this method shall help you also.
Moreover, why are you in a hurry to retake the GMAT. First you should try to understand where you made mistakes. If you plan to score atleast a 35-38 in verbal, then being a non-native, its almost impossible under 25-30 days, given the fact that you are also supposed to review your prior errors and continue to take tests.
Lastly, keep practicing and book the date only when you are satisfied with your practice test performance. This will yield you a score more than what you expect.
Good luck and Merry Christmas.

Have you gone through a complete set of verbal books? You may think that the verbal section is just English for which you need no theory but that is not the case. There are a lot of strategies that could help you get a better grasp on verbal questions. You need to first go through the complete verbal material of one test prep company (theory + practice questions). Then you need to do all OG questions thoroughly. You will certainly see improvement. Also, depending on your target score, a month may not be enough. Score improvement, especially in verbal, takes time.

Hi, I am not an expert either. Like Karishma says correctly, I also mistook Verbal too casually. Now as a non native I realize blunders I did.

If I were you, my simplest approach will be:

1. Analyze your practice scores of verbal - which specifically is your weak area
2. Take an appropriate course (I took MGMAT and EGmat both, as non native speaker, in SC the latter helped me more)
3. Re look into your preparation materials
4. Don't time yourself immediately (realized by my own misdirections, it only resulted in frustrations)
5. Refer to books suggestion in forum to improve RC (very important for non natives)

Most importantly don't rush for exam dates, be confidant of your practice status before giving it another shot

All the best
